NGOs’ Reports on the Polls

By Yasser Hady
 
The Egyptian NGOs released their accounts on the Egyptian parliamentary polls that wrapped up on Wednesday. In its report, the Independent Commission for Election Observation condemned the arrest campaigns targeted the Muslim Brotherhood ahead and in the course of the third round of the vote. The report added that these coercive measures illustrated government incredibility. In addition, such actions stimulated fear of free __expression of opinions and hindered the long-desired political change. The account also cited some voting irregularities; violence upsurge, blockage of opposition’s supporters from voting, and polling stations delaying. It, moreover, hinted to the inconsistency of applying court rulings pertaining to vote abolishment in some constituencies.
 
On the same connection, the Egyptian Association for Social Participation Rise regarded Wednesday’s run-offs as ’guerilla warfare’. In fact, massive security presence deformed the image of the election. Furthermore, electorates, in some areas, refrained from going to polls in protest to police’s irregularities of Thursday’s vote.
