A source told Al-Ahram that 5% of the ballots had been spoiled, including by voters inserting the names of candidates not among the two approved.

The election was, however, marred by largescale voter apathy as only just over 40 percent of the registered voting population turned out to exercise their franchise.

In the Nile Delta governorate of Gharbiya, Sisi obtained 90 per cent of votes, with a turnout of more than 50 per cent, state news agency MENA reported, citing preliminary results.


President Sisi is being criticized for not letting other opponents run in the presidential election except for Mousa Mostafa Mousa.The Media in Egypt accuse that Mousa Mostafa Mousa is running as a supporting candidate. Despite extended voting hours and reports of attempts to entice people to cast their ballots with offers of food and money, and sometimes threats, the turnout remained low.

Mr Sisi hailed the participation of Egyptians in the polls on Wednesday night, saying it reflected "the greatness of the country". The official result will be announced on April 2.
