Trump congratulates Egypt's al-Sisi on his election victory

Last week, Sisi posted photos of voters participating in the polls and praised them on facebook for the huge turnout.

Sisi has said he has no ambition to stay after the end of his second term in 2022 - something the current constitution prohibits anyway.

During the same period the army arrested more than 500 "wanted criminals" and prevented 169 people of various nationalities from infiltrating across the western border with Libya, the military said.

The election commission said the vote was free and fair as it gave the results in a televised announcement on Monday.

Huawei boosts up profit to 28.1pc
A partnership between Huawei and American operator AT&T to sell smartphones in the U.S. fell apart in January. This is the company's latest experience to compete directly with Apple and Samsung in high-end devices.

The authority said earlier that it will announce on Monday the final result of Egypt's 2018 presidential election, in which President Abdel Fattah Sisi competed for a second term with Mousa Mostafa Mousa, head of Al Ghad party.

"The voice of the masses of Egyptians will remain a witness - no doubt - that the will of our nation is prevailing with a force that does not know weakness", Sisi had said".

The next highest vote-getter, with 3 percent of the vote, was a supporter of the president. Turnout in the 2014 vote was 47 percent. His sole opponent, little-known politician Moussa Mustafa Moussa, was a supporter of the president who made no effort to challenge him.

He thanked people "who crowded the polling stations" and vowed to work to "increase the common ground" between Egyptians, without differentiating between those who voted for him and those who did not.

Officials said that if any such incidents took place they were not state-sponsored and extremely limited.

Critics say this is a sign of public opposition to Sisi's administration. Mr Sisi swept to victory in an election a year later with 97 percent of the vote.

U.S. President Donald Trump expressed his "sincere congratulations" to Sissi on his reelection victory in a call on Monday, Egypt's state news agency MENA reported.

According to Reuters, he said in a statement: "The process in which we are called to participate is not a real election".
