Syrians voting in the Syria presidential election, June 3, 2014
Presidential elections are being held in Egypt between 26th and 28th of May 2014. Only two candidates are in the run: former army general Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and left wing candidate Hamdeen Sabahi.
Hamdeen Sabbahi’s campaign was not only underfunded but faced an uphill battle against the heavy favorite and former army chief, Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi. Despite the low numbers and resources, campaigners and supporters brought high levels of energy to Hamdeen’s events.
Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi's campaign was much better funded than Sabahi’s. The former general’s photos littered the city as campaigners and supporters sought to draw a connection between him, military presidents of the past, and patriotism.

The polling station opened its doors at 7:00 am and will be receiving voters until 7:00 pm.
The Lebanese National News Agency (NNA) quoted the Syrian Ambassador to Lebanon, Ali Abdul Karim Ali, as saying that the voting process may have to be extended until tomorrow.
Ali told the NNA, "Syrians who have not been able to register their names, or have been prevented from voting can go to one of the polling stations on the Syrian side of the Lebanese-Syrian border on June 3rd."
The Syrian Presidential election will be held in Syria on June 3, 2014. It will be the first multi-candidate presidential election in Syria since the Assad family took power in 1971.
