Critics say Egypt poll is foregone conclusion

Detractors say campaign for presidency is mere formality to lend legitimacy to 2013 overthrow of Mohamed Morsi by army.

    With only two candidates running in Egypt's presidential election on Monday, critics say the campaign is just a formality to lend legitimacy to last year's overthrow of Mohamed Morsi by the army.

    Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the former defence minister who is running against Hamdeen Sabbahi, a candidate in the 2012 presidential election, is widely expected to win the poll.

    Al Jazeera's Bernard Smith reports.
