Prosecutor General Mohamed Shawki underlined, on Sunday 10/12/2023, the importance of the active participation in presidential election, saying it is a national duty and constitutional right.

Shawki made the remarks after casting his vote in a constituency in the New Administrative Capital.

The balloting process, which will last for three days, is held under full judicial supervision.

The candidates running for the presidency include incumbent President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, who is running for a third term in office and whose electoral symbol is a star; Farid Zahran, the leftist opposition Social Democratic Party candidate with the sun as his electoral symbol; Abdel-Sanad Yamama, candidate of the Wafd party who has chosen the palm tree as his electoral symbol; and Hazem Omar, the Republican People’s Party candidate, with the ladder as his electoral symbol.

The final result will be announced on December 18 if no run-off is required.
