Voting in Egypt's constitutional referendum was largely incident-free Wednesday after clashes left nine people dead the previous day, with turnout seen as key to a likely presidential bid by the army chief.Morsi, Egypt's first freely elected and civilian president, was ousted by army chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in July following mass protests against his turbulent one year rule.The constitution, which replaces the one passed under Morsi, is expected to be approved despite a boycott by his Islamist supporters in the Muslim Brotherhood. Just 33 percent of the country's 53 million voters turned out in a referendum on a charter drafted by Morsi's team, which was approved with 64 percent of the votes cast. More than 1,000 people have been killed in clashes since Morsi's ouster, and thousands have been arrested, including the top leadership of the Brotherhood.
