Egypt: citizens overseas to vote Friday in presidential el

Fattah al Sisi

The voting process for overseas residents will last for three days.

The National Election Authority (NEA), headed by counselor Lashin Ibrahim, announced on February 24 the final list for Egypt's upcoming presidential election including President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Moussa Moustafa Moussa, Head of al-Ghad Party.

The electoral commissions of the embassies were equipped with modern, reliable tablets to read the national number of the ID card or passport number of the electorate, as electronic devices have been provided to embassies with specialized programs to manage the electoral process. The Committee set a condition for the worldwide organisations which desired to monitor the election that their agents must be Egyptians and registered on the electoral records. According to Egypt's official electoral commission, 139 polling stations have been set up at Egyptian diplomatic missions in 124 countries.

The commission did not provide the number of Egyptian registered voters living overseas.

All Egyptian expats can vote in March presidential elections regardless of legal status in host countries. "The only thing that matters to us is to provide all facilities for Egyptians to vote, wherever they are", Loza said.

The primary results of the first round of the election will be announced on March 29, where decisions on appeals submitted by candidates, if any, will be made.

Russia's flagship carrier Aeroflot announced on March 13 the resumption of regular flights from Moscow to Cairo starting April 11, and launched ticket sales on the same day.
