Head of Egypt's National Press Authority Karam Jabr، stressed that the state derives its strength and determination from the workers، because they are the main arm in the production process، noting that they are indispensable.

In a press conference held on Thursday، in support of President Sisi، Jabr added that workers should participate effectively in the upcoming presidential elections scheduled for March 26-28.

Moreover، He urged all Egyptian sects to cast their ballots in the upcoming presidential elections.

Noteworthy، The three-day period for Egyptians living overseas to cast their votes ended on Sunday.
