The presidential polls will be held under guarantees and facilities for voters, affirmed President of the National Election Authority (NEA) Hesham Badawi.

All Egyptians should be keen on actively participating in the polls, which will kick off on Sunday and run for three days, he added in exclusive statements to MENA.

The NEA stands at an equal distance from all candidates, he affirmed, saying that the NEA has spared no effort in holding preparations for this electoral entitlement.

Judicial bodies will oversee the voting process as part of the principle of a “judge for each ballot box”, he added.

Representatives of local and international NGOs will take part in following up on the electoral process, he went on to say.

The marathon will be held between four contenders, including incumbent President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, President of the Egyptian Social Democratic Party Farid Zahran, President of Al Wafd Party Abdel-Sanad Yamama, and President of the Republican People’s Party Hazem Omar.

Voting abroad was held from December 1-3 at Egyptian diplomatic missions across 121 countries.

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