The Muslim Brotherhood had previously vowed to hinder presidential elections via peaceful means, such as protests, as they see the process as illegitimate due to the removal by the army of Egypt's first democratically-elected president, Mohamed Morsy.
 
Meanwhile, poll stations were heavily guarded by army personnel to ensure safety and thwart any terrorist attacks.
