埃及星期一大选投票 Egyptians Vote in Presidential Election







Egypt began voting Monday in an election widely assumed to give President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi another four-year term in office.

Sissi has a single challenger, Moussa Mustafa Moussa, who had backed Sissi before joining the race.

A number of other candidates were either arrested or pressured to withdraw, and opposition parties have called for a boycott of the vote.

The election lasts three days with official results expected April 2.

With Sissi expected to win attention is focused on the number of people who turn out to cast ballots in the election.

He came to power in 2013 by ousting President Mohamed Morsi, and then won a 2014 election with 97 percent of the vote. But election officials extended voting in that election by an extra day amid low turnout with final participation figures coming in under 50 percent.
