In this country's first free balloting in 32 years, voters overwhelmingly approved a referendum that will lead to presidential and legislative elections, officials said Sunday. Voters approved a new constitution by 89%, according to results from 3,743 polling stations, the National Electoral Commission reported. Results from only 142 stations were still pending. By approving the constitution, voters set the stage for multi-party presidential and legislative elections some time next year.
