A few weeks ago, Saeed announced that the referendum would be held on July 25.  At that time, he contented himself with saying that the aim of the referendum was for everyone to express their opinion on the nature of the political system, and then a committee would begin later to formulate the results of the referendum into a legal text.  Opponents accuse Saeed of wanting to transform the country into a presidential system, accumulating powers in his own hands, and excluding parties from the political scene.  While Saeed stated more than once that he seeks to eliminate what he said is corruption in the political system.
