Presidential elections are due to be held in Egypt in December 2023, as announced by the National Election Authority, after speculation that the elections might be held earlier than expected. Candidate registration was from 5–14 October 2023 and the election will be held in Egypt from 10 to 12 December; expatriates will vote from 1–3 December.
Incumbent President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who initially came to power in the aftermath of the 2013 Egyptian coup d’état, is eligible for re-election since term limits were adjusted from four to six years by a constitutional amendment in 2019, and he technically will not have served as president for more than the maximum of 12 years at the time of the election. His rule has been described as authoritarian.
