Egypt Holds 2nd Day of Presidential Election; Outcome Known

Egypt Holds 2nd Day of Presidential Election; Outcome Known

Tuesday, 27 March 2018 03:38 AM EDT

CAIRO (AP) — Egyptians are voting for a second day in a lackluster election that President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi is virtually certain to win after all serious rivals were either arrested or intimidated into dropping out of the balloting.

Voters can choose between el-Sissi, the general-turned-president who came to power after ousting in 2013 his elected but divisive Islamist predecessor, Mohammed Morsi, and an obscure politician who registered at the last minute and says he doesn't oppose el-Sissi's policies, Moussa Mustafa Moussa.

With the outcome known, el-Sissi's focus will be on keeping voter turnout high enough to show citizens support his rule.

Tuesday is the second day of the three-day vote — a stretch apparently designed to boost participation. Reporting on the election is restricted, with journalists banned from asking voters who they support.
