PEC – Presidential Vote Extended to 10 PM

The Presidential Elections Committee (PEC) decided to extend the voting time until 10:00 pm instead of 9:00 pm on Tuesday 2752014, the second and final day of the presidential vote.

The voting hours may be extended further according to the circumstances of each polling station and the turnout of voters, PEC secretary general Abdel-Aziz Salman said.

Salman said that 90 per cent of the polling stations opened on the first day of the vote at 9:00 am.

A few number of polling stations opened a little bit late due to the late arrival of judges and aides, he added.

He said that the PEC received a large number of complaints from the representatives of the two candidates Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi and Hamdeen Sabahi.
