Egypt: 53 Million Voters Enrolled in Election Lists - Minister

Minister of Administrative Development Hany Mahmoud said that the number of eligible voters enrolled in election lists is 53 million voters, noting that a committee formed by the Ministry and Civil Status Authority endorsed this figure depending on the national identity database.

He added that the database is still including the names of 30, 000 deceased citizens whose death certificates are not registered using their national IDs, making it difficult to write off their names from the national identity database.
