GAZA CITY (Ma'an) – Egyptian expatriates in the Gaza Strip on Thursday urged the Egyptian ministry of foreign affairs to allow them to cast votes for the presidential elections on May 15.

Members of the Egyptian community in Gaza told Ma'an that they were urging their foreign ministry to establish a mechanism through Egypt's central elections commission to allow them to cast votes.

About 7,000 Egyptian nationals in the Gaza Strip are eligible to vote but not outside Egypt.

Campaigning opened Saturday in Egypt for a May election likely to be won by the ex-army chief who ousted the elected president, after deadly bombings underscored tensions ahead of the vote.

The May 26-27 presidential poll, meant to restore elected rule following the July overthrow of Islamist Mohamed Morsi, is widely expected to place former army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in power.
