The Ministry of Immigration is following up voting of Egyptian expatriates in the presidential election 2018, which kicked off Friday morning.
In a press statement on Friday, the ministry said that the turnout has been increasing since the morning, adding that Egyptian ambassadors and diplomats in the Gulf countries have flowed to the Egyptian embassies to cast their ballots, alongside Egyptian expats abroad.
The ministry formed earlier an operations room to follow up the voting process. It includes a team from the ministry and a representative of the National Election Authority.
Voting in the Egyptian embassy in the capital of New Zealand has officially ended, as it was the first embassy worldwide to open its doors for the voters.
Egyptian presidential election for expatriates will run for three days, and Egypt's embassies and consulates are scheduled to open their doors for voters as of 9:00 am local time until 9:00 pm.
