Egypt votes in presidential poll

Egyptians head to the polls as opposition calls for nationwide boycott of the election.

    Millions of Egyptians have begun voting in a race largely expected to be won by the country’s former army chief.

    Abdel Fattah El Sisi, who led the coup that ousted former president Mohammed Morsi last July, is expected to win in a landslide victory.

    Sisi supporters say he can bring stability back to Egypt.

    His only challenger in the two-day poll is Hamdeen Sabahy - a leftist - who came third in the election two years ago.
