#Egypt Elections Monitoring: Report for Day One of Elections

 Egypt begun their three days Presidential elections process today to elect for the country a new President. Although the process of elections is ongoing, critics have said that President Al Sisi is likely to win the elections since he has no serious contender in the election.

Moussa Mostafa Moussa, the only contender to Sisi in this year’s Presidential elections is said to be a Sisi supporter who only joined the race to present a false sense of competition.

Meanwhile, voter turnout was remarkably high towards midday as more people trooped into the various polling stations to cast their votes. Reports by the National Elections Authority (NEA) indicated that turn out of voters in governorates of the Red Sea, New Valley, Marsa MAtrouh and South Sinai had the lowest voter turnout whilst voter turnout was on the high in other parts of the country. The interior ministry provided wheel chairs to support the Elderly people and disabled persons so they could cast their votes too.

Egypt takes three days to votes and the country has a total of 59 million eligible voters who are expected to cast their votes in this year’s elections.
