Al-Shora wins election, replaces Okasha in parliament

The Supreme Electoral Commission (SEC) announced Mohamed Al-Shora as the winner in the Talkha constituency in Daqahleya governorate, who will replace expelled MP Tawfik Okasha.


The Supreme Electoral Commission (SEC) announced Mohamed Al-Shora as the winner in the Talkha constituency in Daqahleya governorate, who will replace expelled MP Tawfik Okasha.

Al-Shora, who previously ran for a parliamentary seat in the initial round of elections, said in his earlier campaign that providing job opportunities for youth will be at the top of his agenda.

Voting began 16 April and concluded on Thursday.

Al-Shora received 32,000 votes, and defeated his opponent, Major-General Gamal Abdel Zaher, who received 28,000 votes.

MPs voted to expel Okasha from Egypt’s legislative body in early March after he held a meeting with the Israeli ambassador to Egypt.

During the meeting, Okasha made assurances regarding supplying water resources to Israel if Israel supported Egypt in the conflict over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD).

Sixteen candidates were accepted to run for the vacant seat out of 28 candidates.

Al-Shora acknowledged his definitive support for President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi. “We are the ones who supported Al-Sisi all the way and support the constitution,” Al-Shora said.
