Egyptian expats to vote in elections

The head of the High Elections Committee has said that a new article is being added to the Interim Constitution to allow Egyptians living abroad to vote in elections and referendums.

In a press statement on Saturday, Abdel Moez Ibrahim added that expatriates will vote at their embassies or consulates, under the supervision of ambassadors and consuls.

Ibrahim also said a special law is also being prepared on the rules and procedures under which Egyptian expatriates can practice their political rights.
“This was agreed in a meeting with the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces,” he said
The Administrative Judicial Court had ruled that Egyptians living abroad have the right to vote.
A statement from the cabinet on Saturday said Egyptians living abroad can post their ID numbers on the committee’s website for one week starting 10 November in order to register in the electoral process.
