Polling stations in 13 governorates, including the capital, will open on Saturday morning for Egyptians residing inside the country to cast their vote in the second stage of the House of Representatives elections.

The second stage has continued for Egyptian expats on 4-6 November and will be conducted for locals on 7-8 November. Probable run-offs will be held on 7-8 December.

The second stage includes the governorates of Cairo, Qalioubiya, Daqahliya, Menoufiya, Gharbiya, Kafr Al-Sheikh, Sharqiya, Damietta, Port Said, Ismailia, Suez, North Sinai and South Sinai.

An estimated 31 million voters in 13 governorates will be able to vote on the remaining 284 seats of the House of Representatives, comprising 142 individual seats and 142 party list seats.

In the first stage, the electoral list led by the Mostaqbal Watan Party swept up the majority of votes, the National Election Authority (NEA) announced on Sunday.

The first stage in the elections covered districts in the Western Delta and Upper Egypt.

The turnout in the first stage was 28.06 percent, which is slightly more than 9 million voters, according to the NEA.

A run-off for the first stage will be held from 21 to 23 November for Egyptian expats and on 23 and 24 November for voters inside the country, the NEA said.
