Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli on Monday chaired the central operations room to follow up on the second day of voting in the 2024 presidential election.


After casting his ballot at a polling station in the New Administrative Capital on Sunday, the premier had called on citizens to exercise their constitutional right and positively take part in the election process.


Around 67 million Egyptians are eligible to vote in the three-day elections.


Voting abroad was held from 1-3 December at 137 Egyptian embassies and consulates across 121 countries.


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 National Election Authority is scheduled to announce the final results on 18 December if no run-off is required.
