Forty thousand Egyptians in Saudi Arabia register to vote in parliamentary elections

Egypt’s consulate in the Saudi Arabian port city of Jeddah on Sunday received a myriad of Egyptians registering themselves to be eligible to vote in the upcoming Egyptian parliamentary elections.
Consul Ali El-Esheri, vice consuls and other volunteers assisted in wrapping up the registration process.
In total, 40,000 Saudi-based Egyptians registered to vote in the forthcoming elections: the highest number of expatriate voters in any country.
Unofficial estimates place the number of Egyptians living in Saudi Arabia at around three million.
