Considered all but certain to win is the man who removed Morsi — retired military chief Field Marshal Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who for the past 10 months has been the most powerful figure in Egypt. The only other candidate in the race is leftist politician Hamdeen Sabahi, who finished third in the 2012 presidential election.
The vote brings a new phase in Egypt’s upheaval since the 2011 toppling of longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak in a popular uprising.
