NAIROBI, Kenya — Preliminary results announced Thursday showed that Kenya's new constitution is likely to pass overwhelmingly, but opponents of the new draft questioned the returns.

Preliminary results showed that about 67 percent of the nation voted for the new constitution on Wednesday, with 33 percent voting against it. The results were based on returns from 75 percent of stations sending in votes electronically.

Backers of the "No" vote said they have misgivings about the results but appealed for calm.
