CAIRO: The High Elections Committee (HEC) announced Friday the results of the run-off in four constituencies in Egypt’s parliament elections where the results were canceled by court orders, Youm7 reported.
The turnout reached 16.07 percent as the number of voters who cast their ballots in the four constituencies reached 292,529 out of 1.9 million voters in and outside Egypt, head of the HEC Ayman Abbas said in a press conference Friday.
On Oct. 25, the Administrative Court cancelled the parliament elections results in two constituencies in Upper Egypt’s governorate of Beni Suef after a name of a judicially disqualified candidate was listed on the ballots, Youm7 reported.
For the same reason, the court cancelled voting results in El-Raml constituency after candidate Aly Elba, who was excluded over a “bad reputation,” earned 23,000 votes in the first round.
In Damanhur, a jailed parliamentary candidate won some 18,472 votes in Damanhur. The candidacy Mabrouk Zeatar, however, was approved by the Administrative court, even though he is jailed pending a retrial.
