Update – Day 3 Report of #EgyptElection

Today marks the last day of voting in the 3 day Egyptian elections that has so far been characterised with low turnout and orderly electoral process.


The elections has so far been described by international observers as peaceful and professional with the military providing support to the electoral management body and assisting the aged and disabled  to cast their votes.
 
Interestingly, it has been reported that the governor of Egypt’s New Valley is offering LE15 million to  eligible voters in five villages within his jurisdiction that would produce the highest turnout in the Presidential Elections. Some voters were also seen chanting songs to create a lively and harmonious atmosphere while praising their candidate Al- Sisi.
 
Voter turnout has been remarkably high in Northern Sinai with women showing up at various polling stations to cast their votes whilst voter turnout has been low in other parts of Egypt. The National Electoral Authority also announced a fine of 500 pounds on all eligible voters who refuse to vote reminding them that the constitution demanded that each eligible voter partakes in elections.
 
Reports have indicated that although elections have been smooth, some poilice personnel cops and traffic men were found ceasing licensees from drivers demanding them to go and cast their votes at all cost.
