Cairo: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has been re-elected for a second term with a sweeping majority, garnering nearly 92 per cent of the total votes, media reports said on Thursay.
According to early estimates, more than 23 million Egyptians voted for the 63-year-old Field Marshal in the three-day presidential election.

According to non-official figures, 21,088,295 people voted for Sisi in polling stations across Egypt. The official results will be announced on April 2.
Sisi posted photos of voters participating in the polls and praised them on facebook for the huge turnout. “The voice of the masses of Egyptians will remain a witness — no doubt — that the will of our nation is prevailing with a force that does not know weakness,” Sisi said.
According to the official vote count released by the poll panel, Sisi received 2,54,940 votes against Moussa’s 9,563 votes. — PTI
