Egyptian expats continue their voting at Egyptian diplomatic missions abroad in the second day of the 2024 Presidential Election.
Egypt’s embassies and consulates are open to receive eligible voters, making all logistical and technical preparations to ease the voting process for Egyptian electors desiring to exercise their constitutional right within a free and fair democratic political process.
According to Egypt’s National Elections Authority (NEA), voting for Egyptians abroad start on December 1-3, 2023, from 9am to 9pm according to the local time in every country.
The voting process will take place in 137 Egyptian embassies and consulates in 121 countries across the world.
Candidates running for the presidency include incumbent President Abdel Fattah El Sisi, represented by a star symbol; as well as Farid Zahran, the Social Democratic Party candidate, with the electoral symbol of a sun.
This is in addition to Abdel Sanad Yamama, the candidate chosen by Egypt’s oldest liberal party, Al-Wafd, who is represented by the symbol of a palm tree; and Hazem Omar, the Republican People’s Party candidate, with a ladder symbol.
All Egyptians, whose names are registered in the electoral roll and carry a valid passport or national ID card, are entitled to vote.
