Egypt on Tuesday extended its presidential election for a third day after reports of low voter turnout threatened to deprive the all-but-certain winner, former army chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, of the overwhelming show of public support he seeks. Opponents and observers said the thin voting showed the extent of discontent with el-Sissi and his campaign, not just among his Islamist foes but among many in the public who fear the retired field marshal offers no solutions for Egypt’s woes and will return it to the autocratic ways of Hosni Mubarak, ousted in a 2011 uprising after 29 years in power.
