The Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) candidate list is the frontrunner in the electoral race in the South Qena constituency.

The FJP secured 144,000 votes and the Salafist Al-Nour Party came in second with 76,000 votes. The liberals followed with the Wafd Party, who secured 31,000 votes, and the Reform and Development Party, with 20,000 votes.

The head of the committee supervising the elections in the constituency announced on Thursday that there will be runoffs between Adel Ebeid of the Al-Nour Party and independent Hamdy Abu Korei for the individual seat.

However, Abel-Rahim El-Ghoul, a former member of parliament and heavyweight of the now defunct National Democratic Party has reportedly lost. El-Ghoul was running as an independent and contesting the worker's seat.
