Egypt to hold referendum on extending Sisi's rule on April 20-22 -election commission

Egypt's election commission said on Wednesday that a referendum on constitutional amendments - including potentially allowing President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to stay in office until 2030 - will take place on April 20-22.

A second amendment would provide for setting up an upper parliamentary chamber.
