2018 Egyptian presidential election

Presidential elections were held in Egypt between 26 and 28 March 2018,[1] though Egyptians abroad voted from 16 to 18 March 2018.[2] On 19 January, incumbent President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi formally announced he would run for a second and final term.[3] El-Sisi won the election with 97% of the vote. A runoff would have taken place 19 to 21 April outside the country and 24 to 26 April within the country.[4] 14 human rights groups dismissed the poll as "farcical".[5] They said the authorities had "trampled over even the minimum requirements for free and fair elections", stifling basic freedoms and eliminating key challengers.[6]
