Egypt: NCHR Urges Egyptians to Vote in Presidential Run-Off

The National Council for Human Rights (NCHR) urged eligible Egyptian voters to cast their ballots in the presidential run-off on June 16-17.

Egyptian voters should exercise their constitutional and legal rights and enrich democratic life, NCHR said.

In statements Friday 15/06/2012, NCHR vice-president Mohamed Faeq hoped a high voter turnout would be reported in the second round of the election to choose a president that expresses the will of the nation.

Faeq underscored the importance of respecting the constitution and law during the voting to get free and transparent results.
