CAIRO, Egypt—Egypt’s interim president has urged Egyptians to come out and vote in this week’s presidential election, saying the vote will shape the nation’s future.

In a televised address broadcast Sunday, Adly Mansour also sought to assure Egyptians that state institutions, including his office, would not interfere in the Monday and Tuesday vote.


Mansour said: “Let us all come out tomorrow and the day after to express our free choice—choosing without being guided or dictated the person we trust to have the ability to build and run the nation.”


Former military chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi is the heavy favorite to win the election. His only rival is leftist politician Hamdeen Sabahi, who placed a strong third in the last general election held in 2012.
