CAIRO, March 29 (Xinhua) -- Initial results showed that Egypt's incumbent President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi won 92 percent of votes in the 2018 presidential election, with 23 million Egyptians voting for him, state-run Al-Ahram news website reported Thursday.
According to Al-Ahram, some 25 million Egyptians out of nearly 60 million eligible voters have cast their votes in the three-day election concluded Wednesday.
The initial results revealed that Sisi's sole rival in the race, little known politician Moussa Mostafa Moussa, garnered only three percent of the votes.
The voter turnout according to the initial results amounts to over 42 percent.
