The Presidential Elections Commission on Monday invited all presidential candidates to a meeting at 6 pm Tuesday.
The purpose of the meeting is to brief candidates on all procedures and preparations and to listen to their proposals, commission head Hatem Bagato said in a statement.
The commission is also holding the meeting to clear any obstacles and meet the legal demands put forward by candidates.
Judicial sources told Al-Masry Al-Youm that members of the commission will explain procedures that are being adopted for the first time in this election, such as having pictures of the candidates printed on the ballot papers, and other procedures intended to prevent vote rigging.
The same sources said changes have been made to the way voters sign their names, and copies of the results of the vote-counting process will be handed to the candidates' representatives, to conform with recent amendments to the presidential election law.
