Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi has been re-elected president of Egypt with 97 percent of vote, beating one little-known challenger for a second four-year term. The first presidential term of 63-year-old Field Marshal will officially end on June 7.

Sisi won 21,835,378 votes, while Moussa won 656,534 votes, he added.

Sisi's serious contenders either withdrew, were sidelined or were detained. Sissi won over 97 percent of the vote after all his opponents were forced out of the race.
