Worthy Christian News » Egypt's Sisi heads for big win in early provisional count

Former Egyptian army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi was on course for a sweeping victory in the country's presidential election on Wednesday, according to early provisional results.

Sisi's campaign said their man had captured 93.4 percent with 2,000 polling stations counted, while judicial sources said he had 89 percent with 3,000 polling stations counted.

Turnout was 44.4 percent of Egypt's 54 million voters, according to the judicial sources.

The lower than expected turnout figure raises questions about Sisi's credibility as leader of the Arab world's most populous nation.
