Egypt President Election Three candidates are in the fray against el-Sisi. These include Farid Zahran, head of the opposition Social Democratic Party, Abdel Sanad Yamama, president of the Wafd Party, and Hazem Omar, head of the Republican People’s Party. El-Sisi will be elected president for the third time in a row if he prevails. This election is not receiving much enthusiasm because of the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza.
Egypt President Election Voting for the presidency in Egypt, which is suffering from a severe financial crisis, started on Sunday and will continue for three days. The results will come on December 18. In these elections, the victory of current President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi is considered almost certain as there is no strong rival candidate in front of him.
Three candidates against el-Sisi
However, three candidates are in the fray against el-Sisi. These include Farid Zahran, head of the opposition Social Democratic Party, Abdel Sanad Yamama, head of the Wafd Party, and Hazem Omar, head of the Republican People’s Party. If al-Sisi wins, he will become president for the third consecutive time.
Expected to vote in large numbers this time
The war raging on their nation’s eastern borders is the focus of the country’s citizens’ attention these days. With a population of 10.50 crore, official figures indicate that roughly one-third of the population lives in poverty. This election has over six crore eligible voters, and organizers anticipate a record turnout.
Elections may be held again
According to Egypt’s National Election Authority, if no candidate gets more than 50 percent of the votes, re-polling will be held from January 8 to 10. Let us tell you that Field Marshal Al-Sisi, who retired from the Egyptian Army, became the President for the first time in 2013 after ousting the country’s first democratically elected President Mohammed Morsi from power. In 2018, they again came to power with an overwhelming majority.
