CAIRO: Cairo Governor Galal Mostafa said on Sunday that the governorate is committed to neutrality towards all potential presidential hopefuls in the elections, slated for May 26 and 27.
“It is a significant stage in Egypt’s history,” he stressed, adding that only the Supreme Electoral Commission is in charge of regulating the electoral process.
“Our mission is confined to preparing the polling stations to ensure a smooth voting process,” Mostafa said.
Meanwhile, the governor said that gardens have been opened to the public to celebrate Easter.
A number of meetings will be held to determine the directorates’ readiness for securing the Coptic feast of Easter, which started today with Palm Sunday celebrations.
On Sunday the governor sent a telegram of congratulations to Pope Tawadros II of Alexandria and all Egyptian Christians on the Holy Week and Easter.
“The governorate is committed to securing churches during the festivals,” he pledged.
