CAIRO – 10 December 2023: Thousands of polling stations across the country have just opened their doors this Sunday morning at 9 AM, ready to welcome up to 67 million eligible Egyptian voters for the 2024 Presidential Elections.

The Egyptian people are eagerly lining up, determined to exercise their democratic right and ensure their voices are heard as they choose their leader for the next decade, until 2030.

At 9 AM sharp, President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, president since 2014, voted in the elections. First Lady Entissar Amer has also cast her ballot in the same polling station in Heliopolis, Cairo.

Minister of Social Solidarity Nevine El-Qabbaj, Minister of Civil Aviation Mohamed Abbas Helmi, and Mokhtar Abdel Latif, Chairman of the Arab Organization for Industrialization (AOI) cast their ballots.

Youth and elderly voters have flocked to the polling stations across Egypt to exercise their constitutional right in casting their votes.

The 2024 Presidential Elections for citizens inside the country is taking place a few days after the three-day voting process for Egyptians abroad was concluded early in December.

The marathon is held between four contenders, including incumbent President Sisi, President of the Egyptian Social Democratic Party Farid Zahran, President of Al Wafd Party Abdel-Sanad Yamama, and President of the Republican People's Party Hazem Omar.

The four candidates have released their vision to improve people’s lives in the coming six-year presidential term.

The final result will be announced on December 18 if no run-off is required. Voting inside the country will take place from 10-12 December.
