Egypt's opposition on Saturday accused the Muslim Brotherhood of "vote rigging," AFP reported, as Egyptians took to the polls to vote on the country's new constitution.

The National Salvation Front expressed in a statement "deep concern...over the number of irregularities and violations in the holding of the referendum," according to AFP, attributing the inconsistencies to a "clear desire for vote rigging by the Muslim Brotherhood."

The statement reportedly did not call for a boycott of the vote, however, which the Front previously had threatened, but rather urged Egyptians to reject the largely Islamist-drafted constitution.
