Cairo, Mar.1 (ANI): Egypt's first presidential election since last year's ouster of Hosni Mubarak's regime will be held on May 23 and 24.


The Los Angeles Times quoted the head of the election commission, Farouk Sultan, as saying that candidates must submit applications between March 10 and April 8.


He said the presidential campaigning period would begin on April 30 and end two days before election day.


If necessary, a run-off will be held in June, he added.

The commission also set a maximum of 10 million Egyptian pounds as campaigning expenses for each candidate.
