Abdel Halim Hafez's first public appearance was not very well received
Egypt's National Election Authority (NEA) officials announced the election result in Cairo on Monday.
In a brief victory speech broadcast Monday evening on state television, Sisi sent "greetings, appreciation, and respect" to Egyptians.
Most Egyptians who voted for Sisi expressed their belief in him as a savior from Islamist radicalism of the now blacklisted Brotherhood group and trust in Sisi's leadership of the country for eradication of terrorism, further security, stability and development.
Sisi's only challenger and al-Ghad Party chief Moussa Mostafa Moussa were able to get only three percent of vote share.
"The voice of the masses of Egyptians will remain a witness - no doubt - that the will of our nation is prevailing with a force that does not know weakness", Sisi had said".
Despite Sisi's appeal for a large turnout, only 41% of registered voters cast their ballots, with seven percent spoiled ballots.

The US State Department said it had noted "reports of constraints on freedoms of expression and association in the run-up to the elections" and "will continue to encourage a broadening of opportunities for political participation for Egyptians, and emphasize the importance of the protection of human rights and the vital role of civil society in Egypt".

"The entire world heard your chants for the love of Egypt".
State media had portrayed failure to vote as a betrayal of Egypt.
There were no presidential debates and Sisi himself did not appear at any official campaign events, although he spoke at a number of ceremonies.
Sisi won 21,835,378 votes, while Moussa won 656,534 votes, he added.
Morsi's removal in 2013 ushered in a deadly crackdown that killed and jailed hundreds of Islamists.
