Abdel Wahab stressed that the high turnout of voters demonstrated the awareness and responsibility of Egyptians during crises.
The queues of voters extended for tens of meters outside the headquarters of the Embassy and the Consulate on the first day of voting. About 17,000 voted on the first day only.
