Egyptian Parliamentary Elections 2010

Posted on Updated on

Having driven around various parts of Cairo, doing my monthly chores I can only say that by the end of election day, streets have been extremely quiet in Cairo, no election day hustle and bustle, people avoiding possible violence at polling stations. This apathy is understandable considering that most people already know the results before they have been concluded.  So far 8 people have been killed in election related violence and an independent candidates son was stabbed to death a few days ago.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Looking back in time, we know that Egypt has had a great history of transparency, justice and economic prosperity for centuries.
