Monitoring group says voting turn out is high in final round of Egypt election.
Turnout in the final round of Egypt's presidential election has so far been higher than in the first round, a local monitoring group said on Saturday, some three hours after polls opened at 8 am (0600 GMT).
The Egyptian Alliance for Election Monitoring said women and the elderly were the main voters.
"The rise in voting in the run-off indicates that the overall turnout will be high compared to the first round," said Hafez Abu Saeda, the coordinator general of the alliance.
