Highlights: Egypt to vote tomorrow amid economic crisis and war at the gates. About 65 million eligible voters, more than eight million in Cairo alone.

Polling stations for the presidential elections in Egypt will open tomorrow at 9 a.m. (8 a.m. in Italy). A three-day consultation that will involve about 65 million eligible voters, more than eight million in Cairo alone, while the country is facing growing economic difficulties and dealing with the war between Israel and Hamas, which is getting closer and closer to the border.
The National Electoral Authority today made a final appeal for participation in the vote, already carried out by residents abroad between 1 and 3 December, at the end of a substantially non-existent electoral campaign. Many take for granted a re-election of Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, who has been in power since 2014, for a third term while the government points to the presence of three other candidates in an effort for a democratic transition.
Justice Hazem Badawi, head of the National Electoral Authority (ANE), said today that "the authority renews its commitment to ensure that the election results express the will of the voters, so participate in drawing the map of the future and answer the call of the nation".
