Abandoned vehicles at polling stations removed by security

CAIRO: Any abandoned vehicles or cars parked in the vicinity of polling stations have been removed for security reasons, director of Cairo Traffic Alaa al-Degwy told Youm7 Monday.

There have been campaigns to remove abandoned cars from the streets in fear of using them in bombings.

In the first phase of parliamentary elections in October, 56 abandoned cars were removed.

Monday will conclude the second day of voting in the second phase of the elections in 13 governorates. The runoffs will be held Dec 1.

Over 20,000 Egyptian expats in 139 countries cast their ballots in the first day of parliament election second round, a Foreign Ministry official was quoted by Youm7 Sunday.

The turnout of the runoff of the first phase of the elections reached 21.7 percent, down from 26.56 percent in the first round, head of the High Election Committee (HEC) Ayman Abbas said in a press conference Oct 30.
