Egyptian artist Ahmed Bedeir casted his vote for the presidential elections while he was in Lebanon in accordance with the generally accepted electoral rules.


According to the electoral rules he has the right to vote if he is abroad, on the condition that he does not vote at home upon his return.


Large number of Egyptian expats have flocked to  embassies and consulates in 121 countries to express their will and vote for the upcoming presidential elections.

The National Election authority published a list of the addresses of embassies and consulates where registered voters can cast their ballot. Here is the list.

Spokesman for the Foreign Ministry Ahmed Abu Zeid said the operations room of the ministry is following up the voting process for Egyptian expats in all polling stations in the Egyptian embassies and consulates across the world.

In a post on his X account on Saturday, Abu Zeid said that voting in the presidential election is continuing smoothly for the second day in a row, adding that there is a high turnout by members of the Egyptian expat communities desiring to exercise their constitutional rights.

The marathon is held between four contenders, including incumbent President Abdel Fattah El 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 final result will be announced on December 18 if no run-off is required.


Voting inside Egypt will take place from 10-12 December.
