CAIRO - Egypt's elections committee rejected on Sunday a defeated presidential candidate's appeal against voting results that gave former army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi a landslide victory, judicial sources said.

Leftist politician Hamdeen Sabahi only got 3 percent of the votes in last week's elections, according to initial results that showed Sisi in the lead with 93 percent of votes. Official results are expected to be announced this week.



The vote came 10 months after the army's ouster of elected Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July in reaction to protests against his rule.

The army-backed government had since cracked down hard on Morsi's Islamists' supporters killing hundreds and jailing thousands.
