The first day of decisive voting in the second round of presidential elections ended on Saturday night in Egypt according to local media.
The second phase of voting began quietly enough. Almost all 13,000 polling stations in 27 provinces across the country began to work on time.

A small number of sites, because of regulatory delays by judges, opened late.

Presidential elections in Egypt will end on Sunday.

On the ballot there are only two names: the representative of the Islamic movement, “Muslim Brotherhood” Mohammed Mursi and the last Prime Minister of the Hosni Mubarak era Ahmed Shafik.

The winner in the second round only needs to receive a majority of votes.
