CAIRO — Egypt’s military-backed government showed signs of panic on Tuesday at the conspicuously low turnout in the presidential vote that was expected to confer new legitimacy on the former general who ousted the elected president last summer.
On the second of two scheduled days of voting, the government initially extended the polling by an hour, until 10 p.m., then, when evening failed to bring a surge of voters, it took the extraordinary step of adding a third day to try to get more people to the polls.
