U.S welcomes the results of Egypt elections

World Today

The United States has welcomed the results of the election and said that it looks forward to working with the new President Abdel-Fattah Al-sisi.

The White House urged Egypt’s president-elect to adopt democratic reforms, including governing with accountability and transparency and protecting the universal rights of all Egyptians.

Former army chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi won Egypt’s landslide election with nearly 97 percent of the vote.

In a statement, the White House says it was pleased that international observers were allowed inside Egypt for the vote and that balloting proceeded in a calm and peaceful manner. However, the White House says it has concerns about the “restrictive political environment” in which the election took place. CCTVs Daniel Ryntjes has more.
