The Egyptian Citizens continued, for the seventh consecutive day, converging on public notary offices to fill in endorsement forms for President Abdel Fattah El Sisi to run for a new term in office.
Under constitutional amendments, presidential candidates are required to collect at least 25,000 endorsements from 15 governorates across the country or from 20 MPs to be able to run in elections slated for December.
