Egypt’s National Elections Commission announced that Egyptian actor Lebleba had voted twice in the December presidential election and an investigation had been launched regarding this matter.

Lebleba had allegedly cast her vote in the Egyptian consulate located in Saudi Arabia while attending a film festival and then cast another vote in Egypt on her return from Saudi Arabia.

Media reports indicate that Lebleba may not have been aware that voting twice in a presidential election constitutes a punishable criminal offense. Additionally, the judge who oversees the list of individuals who have already voted in the election may have forgotten to review it when the actor was casting her vote for the second time.

The presidential election was held across the country from December 10 through 13, with the result announced on December 18.

In a press conference, the elections commission estimated that 45% of those eligible to vote in the election (more than 67 million people) participated in this presidential election, with more than 30 million casting their votes at electoral commission headquarters in Egypt and abroad.

Voting twice in any election constitutes a crime under Law No. 45 of 2014, as amended.
