Egypt's election commission said Sunday only two presidential hopefuls, one of them the powerful former military chief who nine months ago ousted the country's first democratically elected leader, have submitted their papers to run in next month's polls.
Egypt's former military chief and presumed presidential front-runner visited the Coptic pope Saturday ahead of Orthodox Easter, making his first public appearance since he formally made his bid for the presidency.
More than 100,000 protesters took to the streets in Egypt vowing to stop a draft constitution that Islamist allies of President Mohammed Morsi approved early Friday in a rushed, all-night session without the participation of liberals and Christians.
The chairman of Egypt's presidential election commission says the Muslim Brotherhood's candidate and Hosni Mubarak's last prime minister will context next month's runoff vote.
The two surviving candidates in Egypt's presidential election appealed Saturday for support from voters who rejected them as polarizing extremists in the first round even as they faced a new challenge from the third runner-up who contested the preliminary results.
The candidate of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood won a spot in a runoff election, likely against a veteran of ousted leader Hosni Mubarak's regime in what would be a deeply divisive battle to become the new president of Egypt, according to partial results Friday from the first round of voting.
Egypt's landmark election for a new leader, in which voting took place for a second day Thursday, has brought out a generation gap in many families around the country, with elders looking to old, known faces and their children yearning for something new.
Some in Egypt have urged Sabahi to withdraw from the race to avoid providing what they say would be a democratic facade to el-Sissi's likely victory.
"Everyone who signed the petition for me I consider a hero," he said. "This is a great moment to complete with our free votes the path set by those who lost their lives (in the revolution). ... God willing, we will have a great (election) battle and a victorious one."
