CAIRO – Two people died of natural causes on Wednesday, the final day of the referendum on a revised version of Egypt’s 2012 suspended constitution, the Health Ministry said.
The two deaths occurred in the Upper Egyptian provinces of Minya and Assiut, ministry spokesman Ahmed Kamel said in a statement on Thursday.
He added that 19 people were also injured on the same day.
The Health Ministry said that 11 people had died on the first day of the constitutional vote, including five of natural causes.
Millions of Egyptians had cast their ballot on a revised version of the 2012 constitution, which was suspended by the military when it ousted elected president Mohamed Morsi in July.
The vote was the first milestone in an army-imposed roadmap for post-Morsi political transition, which also includes fresh parliamentary and presidential elections later this year.
