Today's Topic 01/14/14: Despite the security fears and criticisms of rights groups, many Egyptians have said they are eager to vote in the January 14-15 referendum. The planned referendum is the first ballot since the military overthrew the Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, and an event that likely will spawn a presidential bid by army chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. The referendum aims to replace the constitution passed under Morsi a month before he was ousted by the army. As told by Euronews, CCTV News, France 24 and Russia Today.
