(AP) One of Egypt's leading opposition figures pledges continued resistance to his country's constitution even if it is declared to have passed, contending that the process was fundamentally illegitimate.


Unofficial tallies say nearly two-thirds voted in favor of the Muslim-friendly constitution, but turnout was low.


Hamdeen Sabahi, who placed third in the nation's first free presidential race over the summer, said in an interview with The Associated Press that the majority of Egypt's people are not Islamists.


He argued that successive electoral triumphs by President Mohammed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood group are the result of unfair electoral practices and key mistakes by the liberal opposition, particularly a lack of unity and organization.


The Muslim Brotherhood is a minority, this is for sure, he said Monday.
