Egypt: Sisi Officially Wins Second Term as President
Local Editor

Egyptian president Abdel Fatah al-Sisi easily won a second term after an election campaign in which five of his potential challengers were prevented from getting on the ballot.

Preliminary results showed that Sisi won about 92% of the vote, with turnout at around 41.5%.

Twenty-five million of the 60 million registered voters turned out during the three days of polling that ended on Wednesday, state-owned newspaper Al-Ahram reported. Twenty-three million voted for Sisi.

Local Akhbar el-Youm newspaper did not report the full turnout but said Sisi won 21.4 million votes.

Meanwhile, the Al-Ahram newspaper reported that, in addition to 23 million who cast valid votes, 2 million spoiled their ballot papers.

Sisi's sole challenger was Mousa Mostafa Mousa, who previously declared that he "was not here to challenge the president" and who entered the race at the last minute after five other potential challengers were blocked from getting on the ballot.

As army chief, Sisi ousted Egypt's first elected president, Mohamed Morsi, after mass street protests in 2013, then went on to win his first term in 2014 with 96.9% of the vote.
