CAIRO – The National Elections Authority (NEA) said Sunday that the counting of expats’ votes in the presidential election started in Wellington, New Zealand, after three days of overseas balloting.
Executive director of the NEA Ahmed Bendari said 103 voting stations at Egyptian embassies and consulates worldwide are still receiving expats wishing to participate in the presidential election.
Thirty-three balloting stations will open to voters in the coming hours due to global time differences, Bendari said.
He added that vote counting will be carried out by the Egyptian diplomatic missions under the supervision of the NEA. Results of the votes will then be sent to the NEA headquarters in Cairo, Bendari noted.
The final results of the presidential election will be announced according to the set time, Bendari said.
