Egypt's presidential candidates Abdel Fatah al-Sisi and Moussa Mostafa Moussa are entitled to 30 minutes on state-run TV and radio to present their electoral program, according to a decision issued by Egypt's National Media Authority (NMA).
Last week, Egypt's 2018 presidential election campaigning officially started as per the National Election Authority (NEA) timeline.
The election campaign will last for 28 days, and will conclude 24 hours before eligible Egyptian voters cast their ballots to choose between only two candidates; incumbent President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi and Al-Ghad party Chairperson Moussa Mostafa Moussa.
Sisi has chosen a star as his symbol in the upcoming presidential election, while Moussa chose a plane as his symbol.
Sixty million eligible voters will cast their ballots in the election between March 26 and 28 in Egypt, while it will begin on March 16 for expats from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. in each country's local time.
