Egypt's Sisi reelected with more than 90 pc of vote

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi

The Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has been re-elected for a second four-year term, preliminary results suggest, reported the BBC.

Sisi is running nearly unchallenged after the other serious candidates were either arrested or intimidated and he is widely expected to win a second four-year term.

Egypt's election commission said the vote would be free and fair, and Sisi said he wished more candidates had run.

The Opening Day Experience
Four relievers held the Astros to one hit over the final four innings, capped by Keone Kela pitching around a walk in the ninth. Hinch said the Astros will determine after the first five games if Gurriel is healthy enough to join the team.

But initial estimates placed turnout among the 60 million eligible voters at about 41% - below that seen in 2014. Some voters said they had received payments and other inducements to cast their ballots. Opposition figures had called for a boycott after several potential candidates withdrew or were arrested.

Al-Sisi had deposed the country's first democratically elected President Mohamed Morsi, in 2013, in his capacity as defense minister.

Boycotters who cannot show good reason for not going to the polls could a face a fine of up to 500 Egyptian pounds (22 euros), the electoral commission has warned.At a news conference, election commission official, Mahmud al-Sherif, said there had been no violations of Egypt's election law.

Authorities were keen to ensure a higher turnout this time around as Sisi saw attendance at polls as a referendum on his popularity and was seeking a strong mandate to fight militants and push through tough economic reforms.

There were also reports that some people were offered incentives of money and food to cast their ballots, or promised improved public services.

The final results are expected to be announced on Monday.
