Though Zaki and his friends hold different political views, "we all agree that the vote on the new constitution is an important step towards the country's stability ", he told Al-Shorfa.
Nearly 39% of 53 million eligible Egyptians voters voted in the referendum, with around 98% of these -- about 20 million people -- voting "yes" to ratify the constitution, the HEC said.
Ali Awad, constitutional advisor to interim president Adly Mansour, said the constitution went into effect as soon as the outcome of the vote was announced.
After "the constitution was approved, its provisions went into effect and will be enforced", he said in a statement. "This requires state institutions and private and public bodies and citizens to abide by these provisions."
After meeting with political, social and revolutionary forces, the institution of the presidency is currently considering which elections should be held first, the presidential or the parliamentary elections, Awad said.
Interim president Mansour in a speech late on Sunday called on political parties to promote effective and concrete platforms that develop Egyptian political awareness.
Survival and success in Egypt will be for the fittest and those who meet the aspirations of the Egyptian people, he said.
