Polling stations visited by Reuters correspondents pointed to a turnout of around 10 percent, in sharp contrast to the long lines that formed in the 2012 election, suggesting that Sisi, who has enjoyed cult-like adulation, is losing popularity.

La primera jornada de las elecciones legislativas egipcias, que se dividen en varias rondas y no terminarán hasta el mes de diciembre, ha estado marcada este domingo por una bajísima participación. A falta de una cifra oficial, algunas informaciones apuntaban a una tasa de participación inferior al 15%.

A diferencia de aquellos comicios, en estos apenas si concurre algún partido de la oposición al régimen del mariscal Abdelfattá al Sisi, ya sea islamista o laica.

The Egyptian Social Democratic Party has announced that it is competing for individual seats only in the upcoming parliamentary elections.

 

In press statements issued Sunday night, the party said that it was not part of any of the electoral lists competing for the party list seats following the withdrawal of the Sahwet Misr (Egypt's Awakening) list from the electoral process. 

Sahwet Misr withdrew from elections after a court ruled that prospective candidates must re-take the costly required medical check-ups even if they had already done the tests in February.
