CAIRO, June 3 (UPI) -- The final results of Egypt's presidential election will be announced Tuesday, the Presidential Elections Committee said.

The results will be broadcast at 7 p.m. local time.

Voting took place from May 26-28, with initial reports predicting former Defense Minister Abdel Fattah al-Sisi the clear victor.

Unofficial polling results show al-Sisi captured 95 percent of the vote, the highest percentage registered for a presidential candidate since Egypt became a republic in 1953.

Al-Sisi ran against only one opponent, Hamdeen Sabahi.
