1st day of Egyptian President Elections in a Tweet.


The First of two days of voting in Egypt’s presidential election has ended.
Voters choose between former military chief Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and leftist Hamdeen Sabahi. The day passed peacefully without any major incident despite minor skirmishes reported in Minya’s Delga district between security forces and Morsi supporters.

Ahram Online also reported that a total of six improvised explosive devices (IEDs) were discovered at three different locations. Also according to Ahram Online IEDs were also defused in Kafr El-Sheikh, while in Fayoum, an improvised device exploded, but no injuries were reported.

El-Sisi is expected to comfortably win the election however many Egyptians, journalists and international observers consider the turn out to be key. There are mixed reports regarding the turnout so far to date. Some are saying the turnout is lower than expected whilst others suggest that the election process has been improved significantly with more polling places and better organisation.
