Open question

I’m a bit confused as to what seems like contradictory aspects of Egypt’s election law.  Article 37 states that the High Election Commission must publish results three days after the election or referendum.  However, for elections that take place in stages, as the People’s Assembly does, results only have to be announced after the final stage.  This seems like a strange requirement as the PA elections also contain two rounds.  The decision to hold a second round, and which candidates would participate, would inherently require results from the first round to be published.  Am I reading this wrong?
