    The first round of voting in Egypt's elections, which began on November 28, saw long queues of people forming outside polling stations across the country.

    Al Jazeera's Sherine Tadros, reporting from a voting station in the Cairo district of Mattariya on Monday, said the crowds were not as plentiful for the run-off vote, which is to be held on Monday and Tuesday.

    However, a steady stream of residents still turned out in nine governorates across the country to vote, she said, in a run-off that often pitted two candidates representing Islamist parties.
