CAIRO - Preliminary indications show a majority of Egyptians who voted in a referendum backed constitutional changes that will allow Egypt's military rulers to move swiftly to elections, a judicial source said on Sunday.

A parliamentary vote, if the referendum result is confirmed, could now take place as early as September.

"The preliminary indication of the result a few hours before the official announcement is that turn out nears 60 percent and 70 percent voted 'yes', 4 percent were invalid votes and 26 percent said 'no'," a judiciary source told Reuters.
