Trump, Xi congratulate Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi

Sinai 2018

Salim Saad, director of the Egyptian Community Club said, "Many came to the Egyptian community club to celebrate the victory of President Abdel Fattah al Sisi".

Sudanese government on Monday congratulated the Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi on his re-election as president.

Sisi has said he has no ambition to stay after the end of his second term in 2022 - something the current constitution prohibits anyway.

Sisi's serious contenders either withdrew, were sidelined or were detained.

That is good enough to tie with " 60 Minutes " on CBS in households as well as top ABC's " American Idol ", which drew a 4.5. NBC fared much better in 2013 and 2015 - with The Sound of Music and The Wiz , respectively.

The turnout was 41.05 percent, as 24,254,152 voters inside and outside Egypt cast their ballots, head of Egypt's National Elections Authority, Lashin Ibrahim, told a press conference in Cairo.

State media portrayed failure to vote as a betrayal of Egypt.

The almost three percent of the vote not won by the incumbent president went to the unknown politician Moussa Mustafa Moussa, an ardent supporter of el-Sissi's who entered the race at the last minute and did not campaign.

"The sight of Egyptian citizens from all walks of society lining up was impressive and inspiring", Mr Sisi said in a speech to the nation. Some voters said they were offered incentives to cast their ballots including money and food, local and worldwide media reported, but did not say who had made the offers.

Cambridge Analytica worked extensively in India, claims Christopher Wylie
The move comes as the social media giant battles privacy concerns in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal. SCL India, he said, has a database of over 600 districts and 7 lakh villages, which is constantly being updated.

In 2014, as army chief, Mr al-Sisi ousted Egypt's first freely elected president Mohammed Mursi after mass street protests.

The NEA also announced that March 30 was the last day to accept appeals from presidential candidates regarding the decisions and results of the general committees in the presidential election 2018, in preparation for the announcement of the final results on Monday.

We have noted reports of constraints on freedoms of expression and association in the run-up to the elections, Nauert said.

It comes shortly after Trump faced widespread pushback for congratulating another foreign leader, Russian President Vladimir Putin, who similarly won a race that was broadly criticised as neither free nor fair.
