Sisi declared Egypt president-elect with 96.9% of vote

A supporter of Abdel Fatah al-Sisi chants slogans in Cairo on May 27, 2014Ex-army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi won 96.9 percent of votes in Egypt’s presidential election, the electoral commission announced Tuesday, almost a year after he overthrew elected Islamist leader Mohamed Morsi. Turnout in last week’s election, hastily extended to three days amid fears of low turnout, was 47.45 percent, said commission chief Anwar Rashad al-Asi. Sisi’s rival Hamdeen Sabbahi won just three percent of the vote, excluding spoiled ballots. Sisi’s lopsided victory had been certain, with many lauding the retired field marshal as a hero for ending Morsi’s divise rule in July.
