Egyptians in New Zealand began arriving at the headquarters of the Electoral Subcommittee at the Egyptian Embassy to vote on the second day of the 2024 presidential election at 9 a.m. on Saturday (Wellington time).

The Egyptian Embassy in the capital, Wellington, opened its doors to citizens from the Egyptian community to exercise their constitutional right.

The voting process continues today until nine o'clock in the evening Wellington local time.

The subcommittee in Wellington, New Zealand, is the first committee to open its doors to voters, and then the voting process will follow successively in the rest of the electoral headquarters from the far east of the globe to the far west according to the time of each country, so that the Los Angeles State Electoral Committee will be the last committee to close its doors.

The Egyptian presidential race began on Friday morning, corresponding to December 1 - according to the timing of each country in the world in which Egypt has diplomatic and consular missions - with Egyptians abroad voting in the elections in which four candidates are competing.

Egyptians abroad will continue to vote until the day after tomorrow, Sunday, in our diplomatic and consular missions in 137 headquarters in 121 countries, which have been equipped and equipped with modern “tablet” devices that can be relied upon to read the voter’s national number or automated passport, in addition to preparing the available computer units. Embassies have programs dedicated to managing the electoral process.
