Sisi urges big vote in Egyptian election; Islamists urge boycott

Published: 04.27.14, 22:32 / Israel News

Former Egyptian army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Sunday called for a big turnout in a presidential election he is expected to win easily, countering a call for a boycott by allies of deposed Islamist president Mohamed Mursi.

 

Sisi, who deposed Morsi, faces only one competitor in the May 26-27 election - leftist Hamdeen Sabahi. He came third in the 2012 election.

 

Sisi called on Egyptians to vote in "unprecedented numbers for the sake of Egypt", according to an official statement outlining comments he made during a meeting on Sunday with investors in the tourism industry. (AP)
