House of Representatives approves extending emergency state

House of Representatives approves extending emergency state”

The motion passed with more than two thirds majority at the House general session that was held under Speaker Ali Abdel Aal.

Egypt will hold its 2018 presidential race from March 26 to 28, the 10-day candidate registration will start on January 20, the electoral campaigns will kick off on February 24, and the result of the first round will be announced on April 2, according to the country's National Election Authority.

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi had issued a decree in 2017 imposing the state of emergency given the unsafe security situation in the country.

In line with Egypt's constitution, a presidential hopeful must be endorsed by at least 20 lawmakers or by 25,000 voters in at least 15 of the country's 27 governorates in order to be eligible for running.

Authorities say 200 Egyptian lawmakers on Tuesday endorsed President AbdelFattah al-Sissi to run for a second term in office, state-run newspaper al-Ahram reported online.

Sisi, who won a landslide victory in 2013, has yet to announce his candidacy.

Khaled Ali, an opposition lawyer, announced his bid to run for president in November.

A career air force officer, Shafiq narrowly lost to the Islamist Mohammed Morsi in the 2012 elections. It was then extended in July for another three months.

However, Shafiq came back to Egypt last December and announced his withdrawal from the presidential race on Sunday.
