Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has won a second term with 96.9% of valid votes, state media reported on Friday, raising a previous tally from the preliminary count.
The flagship state-owned newspaper Al-Ahram also raised its estimate of turnout in the March 26-28 election to 42.08%, saying 25 million of Egypt's 60 million registered voters had cast ballots.
On Tuesday, the paper had reported that Sisi was reelected with 92% of the vote on a turnout of just over 40%.
It gave no explanation for the upward revisions.
Sisi, who as army chief ousted Egypt's first freely elected president - Islamist Mohamed Morsi - after mass street protests in 2013, won his first term in 2014 with 96.9% of the vote.
The only other candidate on the ballot paper this year, Moussa Mostafa Moussa, won 3.1% of the vote, Al-Ahram said.
Moussa, a little-known politician who is himself a supporter of the president, registered immediately before the close date for applications, saving the election from being a one-horse race.
The National Election Authority is scheduled to announce the full official result on Monday.
Moussa conceded defeat on Wednesday evening, saying he had hoped for 10% of the vote but knew all along that he was up against the "immense popularity" of the president.
More heavyweight would-be challengers were all sidelined, detained or pulled out.
Opposition groups had called for a boycott of this week's vote which they labelled a charade.
Even at 42%, turnout was down on the 47% in the 2014 election despite appeals from Prime Minister Sherif Ismail for voters to fulfil their patriotic duty.
