Egyptians return to vote as election run-off begins

Turnout for the first round of voting held in 14 of Egypt's 27 provinces last week was just 26.6 percent and there was no immediate indication that more voters were casting their ballots TuesdayEgyptians returned to polling stations Tuesday as a run-off for the first round of a parliamentary election began in a vote expected to elect lawmakers firmly backing President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. The previous general election held in late 2011, months after the ouster of longtime leader Hosni Mubarak, aroused widespread interest in a country that was caught in a revolutionary fervour at that time. The subsequent parliament, dominated by Islamists led by the Muslim Brotherhood, was dissolved in June 2012, days before the election of Islamist Mohamed Morsi as the country’s first freely elected civilian leader.
