Nov. 25 (UPI) -- Egyptian interim Prime Minister Hazem El-Beblawi announced today that Egypt’s constitutional referendum will take place in late January 2014, later than originally scheduled.

Spokesman of the Supreme Electoral Committee counselor Hisham Mokhtar also held a press conference regarding the constitutional referendum. Mokhtar noted that the date of the referendum will be decided by the president.

The referendum will determine changes to the 2012 constitutional amendments. It had been expected to take place in December. Beblawi did not elaborate on the reason for the delay.
