CAIRO, EGYPT (AL-MASRIYA TV/CNN) - Egyptians are voting Monday and Tuesday for a new president.

It's the first presidential election since Mohamed Morsy was toppled by the military last year.

Now-retired army chief, Abdel Fatah el-Sisi, is the one who led that coup.

He is expected to win the election.

With one major political party banned - the Muslim Brotherhood - some people are questioning just how fair the election can be.
