Former military chief Abdul Fattah al-Sisi is heading for a huge victory in Egypt's presidential election, preliminary results have shown.

He had gained about 90% of the vote after 2,000 of 12,000 polling stations reported their results.

However, turnout is expected to be lower than 45% despite a massive push to get more people to polling stations. Many groups boycotted the vote.
