CAIRO: A total of 56 abandoned cars around polling stations and pavilions of parliamentary candidates have been removed in Giza to ensure security, Youm7 reported Friday.
Ninety ambulances have been allocated to be deployed across the governorate, as well as power generators to be supplied to polling stations in case of a power cut, Giza Governor Khaled al-Adly said in a Friday statement.
Benches have been arranged to be available outside polling stations for older people waiting for their turn to vote, according to the statement. Elections in Egypt are mostly held at schools.
