AMMAN — The Egyptian embassy in Amman on Sunday called on Egyptian residents in Jordan to vote during the first phase of the 2015 house of representatives elections at the embassy’s headquarters or at the Egyptian consulate in Aqaba, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The embassy said the first phase of voting will be on October 17 and 18, while its runoffs will be on October 26 and 27 from 9am to 9pm.

Egyptian Ambassador to Jordan Khaled Tharwat, head of the elections committee in Amman, said Egyptians residing abroad registered in the elections database have the right to vote if they hold an original national identification card or an active passport showing their address in Egypt,  as well as a document that  proves their residence  abroad.

Tharwat urged every voter to visit as soon as possible for additional information.
