Egypt will hold its Presidential Elections in December instead of the spring of 2024, as economic concerns have shortened the timeline. The Electoral Commission announced that voting will take place from December 10 to 12, with the final results published on December 18. Current president Abdel Fattah al-Sissi is expected to run for a third term, although he has not officially announced his candidacy yet. The economic situation, including high inflation and currency devaluation, is expected to be a significant issue in the elections. So far, only one candidate, Ahmed al-Tantawi, has entered the campaign.
