Egypt’s election authority vows to fine voters $28 for not voting

Egypt’s National Election Authority has warned that eligible voters who do not vote in the ongoing presidential election will be fined $28.

More than 59 million Egyptians are eligible to vote in the three-day presidential election that began on 26 March.

The country’s incumbent President, Abdul Fattah Al-sisi, is widely expected to win a second term in the controversial polls.

His sole opponent is little-known head of the liberal Al-Ghad Party, Moussa Mostafa Moussa, who has previously said he supports Al-sisi.

Two opposition candidates withdrew from the race amid allegations of intimidation while a third, General Sami Anan, was arrested.

Results of this year’s vote are expected on April 2nd.
