Polls open in Egyptian presidential election

Published: 05.26.14, 09:06 / Israel News

CAIRO - Egyptians began voting on Monday in a two-day presidential election which former army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is expected to win, reviving rule by strongman three years after the downfall of Hosni Mubarak.


Polling stations opened at 9 am (6 am GMT) across the country. Sisi, widely seen as Egypt's de facto leader since he deposed the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi last July, faces only one challenger: the leftist politician Hamdeen Sabahi. (Reuters)
