Egypt's Military Says Presidential Vote Before Year-End

General Mahmud Shaheen
Egypt's transitional military government says the country will hold presidential elections one or two months after a parliamentary vote scheduled for September.

The announcement was made by General Mahmud Shaheen, a member of the governing military council, as he unveiled an amended constitution incorporating changes approved in a referendum earlier this month.

The referendum was the first popular vote since the ousting of long-time President Hosni Mubarak in February.
