Cairo — Egypt's Presidential Elections Commission (PEC) will hold a press conference on Tuesday to announce the final outcome of last week's presidential election.
Provisional results show that former army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi won easily against leftist politician Hamdeen Sabahi.
Null votes exceeded those gone to Sabahi who only garnered 3 percent of the vote against Sisi's 93.3 percent, the unofficial results showed.
Celebrations are expected to take place in different locations, including by the presidential palace in Heliopolis.
Sabahi had filed a complaint to the PEC that supervised the vote, but it was struck down on Sunday.
The new president will be sworn into office on Saturday.
