CAIRO - Turnout in Egypt's presidential election last week was 66.8%, the National Elections Authority said on Monday.

The election, which was held over three days on Dec. 10-12, was marked by a major effort to mobilise voters despite widespread apathy and drive turnout above the 41% recorded in the previous election in 2018.
