Polls close on final day of voting in Egypt's presidential election

CAIRO (Reuters) - Polls have closed on the third and final day of voting in Egypt’s presidential election, state television reported on Wednesday.

Egyptian voters have said they received payments, food and other incentives to go to the polls as authorities sought to achieve the high turnout President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi wants to legitimise his all but guaranteed victory.
