Stage 2 of the Parliamentary Election coverage of Alexandria Governorate
The NDP has pioneered and new style of unconventional election rigging which has been in practice since the early hours of this morning. They have stationed a large number of thugs-who were distributed earlier today- at some of the important polling stations in Alexandria Governorate such as Mina’a Al-Basal (the onion port), the Raml and Al-Montazah Constituncies. The new tactics this time is for the NDP to dress these thugs in white T-shirts with the “Islam Is The Solution” slogan written on then in large font, in a desperate attempt to mislead the public and blacken the reputation of the Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood, MB).
The Raml Constituency:
The atmosphere was intensifying the tempo was getting higher as the time for opening up the doors of the polling stations in Al Raml was approaching early this morning.
At Mansour Hosain School, 20 thugs armed with knives accompanied by 15 women in full black veils in addition to 30 secret informers and more than 20 microbuses in front of the wards. Numerous busses were stationed in front of the Govern rate’s Civic Hall to transport all civil servants who were anonymously assigned certain wards to vote for the NDP candidates. In Al Raml more than 30 microbuses full of thugs accompanied by two taxis with Matrooh number plates 5551 and 5105 were stationed outside the polling stations.
All indications at Ibn Sina Schools Compound point to the full mobilisation of all polling stations and hence 100 additional thugs were ordered. At Al-Faloja School 20 thugs were gathered in front of the polling station waiting for the arrival of Rashad Farooq, the Raml District Intelligence Officer (Maaheth) and asked they replied that they had been forced to come against their wishes but because of pressure from the above mentioned officer.
Bab Sharq (East Door) Constituency:
A large number of the NDP-thugs as well as Amn-Markazi Police Soldiers (Amn Al Markasi ) carrying heavy batons and all dressed in white shirts with the “Islam is the Solution” slogan written on them were seen and filmed. Mr Saber Abo Al-Fotoh has announced that these thugs arrive in large numbers and they have started their unprovoked thuggery actions in Al-Ibrahimiya region at Wali Caffeteria, at schools where polling stations and at different places in an attempt to prevent the non-NDP voters, representatives and observers from reaching their polling stations and casting their votes.
Mina’s Al-Basal (the onion port) Constituency:
 In an unprecedented incident of its kind that unfolded in front of the eyes of residents who are predominantly MB supporters, the NDP has acquired the illegitimate votes of the strangers ( non-residents who come from different parts of the country outside the Alexandria Governorate whose votes have been bought by bribes and gifts-mainly money and/or clothes given to each and every non-resident) in a desperate attempt to rig the election results in favour of the NDP candidates who enjoy no sympathy nor any respect amongst the local residents. The local residents have witnessed and counted waves of strangers exceed 600 in front of Mina’a Al-Basal Police Station who boarded buses with number plates 501 Beherah, 471 Beherah, 331 Behera and 241 Beherah, and when asked about the reason for their early presence they replied that they came to obtain the Red Cards-polling cards- in order to vote for “Al Safi”, a nick name for Mohamed Abdol A’al Al-Sagheir, the NDP candidate.
Our sources have learned that large numbers of thugs receive their weapons-of batons, heavy sticks colloquially referred to as SHOOM and hoses) to prevent any voter who may seem to be going to vote for Dr Hamdi Hassan, or Mr Hosain Mohamed the MB literate and Labours and farmers candidates (colloquially referred to as Fe’at and Ommal & Falaheen as the current Egyptian Constitution dictates that 50% of parliament members should represent the then largely illiterate farmers and workers that is currently out of pace with social changes and progression within the society). It is worth mentioning that one of the State Security officers had rounded a large number of Mina’a Al-Basal’s thugs and given them clear orders to stand in front of all polling stations in order to prevent any voter who could potentially vote for the MB candidates.
Al-Dekhilah Constituency:
At 07:30 Am exact, some thugs had attacked attacked polling stations at Al-Ameriyah Primary School, breaking the doors and the windows in a show of violence to terrorise the two representatives of the MB candidates Dr Tawakol who were sitting inside the station.

An urgent news just coming in; the courage and persistence of our supporters and affiliates has succeeded in defeating the thugs who are seen now retreating and clearing off the polling stations in Karmooz. We call on all honest people to stand firm and to be patient and remember that steadfastness is a prerequisite to victory.
