Egypt Rejects Appeal Over Election Results


Egypt's elections committee rejected on Sunday a defeated presidential candidate's appeal against voting results that gave former army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi a landslide victory, judicial sources said, according to Reuters.

Leftist politician Hamdeen Sabahi only got 3 percent of the votes in last week's elections, according to initial results that showed Sisi in the lead with 93 percent of votes.
