CAIRO (Reuters) - Voting began in Egypt’s presidential election on Monday, a contest which is expected to give incumbent Abdel Fattah al-Sisi an easy win and a second term as he faces almost no opposition.

Polls opened at 9 a.m. local time (0700 GMT) on the first of three days of voting.

Sisi cast his vote in Cairo as the polls opened, state TV reported.
