Several Egyptian embassies across teh world including in Canberra, New Zealand, Japan and S. Korea have opened their doors for expatriates to cast their vote.

Egypt’s ambassador to China Osama Al-Magdoub said the embassy in Beijing had mobilised the Egyptian community residing in China via social media to encourage them to exercise their constitutional right in participating in the presidential election.

The Egyptian community in Saudi Arabia organized massive campaigns, organisational committees and voluntary task teams to assist in the 2018 presidential election in the Saudi kingdom and to encourage Egyptian expatriates into heading to the Egyptian embassy in Riyadh and the Egyptian consulate in Jeddah to cast their ballots.

Due to political unrest and a worsening security situation, the elections would not take place in three countries: Yemen, Syria and Libya.

The diaspora vote for the 2018 presidential election will last for three days beginning March 16.

Egyptians at home are due on March 26-28 to cast their ballots in the country’s 27 governorates.

The National Election Authority (NEA), headed by counselor Lashin Ibrahim, announced on February 24 the final list for Egypt’s upcoming presidential election including President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Moussa Moustafa Moussa, Head of al-Ghad Party.

President Sisi said on Thursday his government had fulfilled its promises during his first term and called on Egyptians to vote in large numbers to give the victor a strong mandate.

Sixty million eligible voters will cast their ballots in the election on March 26-28 in Egypt, while expatriates will vote on March 16-18 at 139 polling stations located in embassies and consulates of 124 countries, said Ibrahim in a press conference.

The primary results of the first round of the election will be announced on March 29, where decisions on appeals submitted by candidates, if any, will be made.

The final results of the first round will be announced on April 2.

DR Congo Ministry of Health spokesperson Jessica Ilunga has declared that violence and community mistrust have continued to hamper all efforts to control and end the fresh Ebola outbreak, which started Aug. 1.



Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.

Meanwhile, some experts warn that, that doesn’t mean the world’s second-largest Ebola outbreak on record is yet under control, and in fact it could simply be moving to new areas of the sprawling country.

Johns Hopkins’ public health expert Jennifer Nuzzo maintains there are several reasons people should continue to view this outbreak as a cause for concern.

However, Nuzzo said Congo needs more than money from the international community and the U.S. in particular. Safety concerns have largely caused the CDC to limit its Ebola experts to the capital city of Kinshasa, where some have returned after being evacuated during an uptick in election-related violence, Nuzzo added that Now is the time for the U.S. to send them into the field.
