CAIRO (AP) -- A spokesman for the third runner-up in Egypt's presidential race has called for a partial vote recount, citing violations.
Early results show that Hamdeen Sabahi came in third by a margin of some 700,000 votes, leaving him out of next month's run-off between the two candidates who won the most votes.
Sabahi's spokesman Hossam Mounis said Saturday the campaign has found evidence of many violations during the two days of voting that would affect the final results. He declined to give details about the violations but said appeals would be filed Sunday.
