Violations that have been reported during the second round of the Egyptian presidential elections are being probed by the Public Prosecution after the Higher Presidential Elections Commission (HPEC) sent it related complaints, said Justice Minister Adel Abdel-Hamid.
The results of these investigations will be announced as soon as they are completed, Abdel-Hamid said on the sidelines of a meeting held to tackle a study jointly prepared by the Egyptian Court of Cassation and the French Research Institute for Development (IRD).
The State is exerting efforts to resolve the issue of slow litigation procedures in Egypt, he said.
Member of HPEC General Secretariat Tareq Shebl expected the results of the presidential runoff will be announced on Saturday or Sunday.
Some challenges filed by runoff candidates Ahmed Shafiq and Mohamed Morsi have made the HPEC examine the data of some ballot papers, Shebl told the Egyptian TV on Thursday.
Most of the filed challenges were related to errors in the electoral process and voter lists, which, according to the challenges, include the names of deceased people, he said.
