Egypt: Parliamentary Elections

The Big Pharaoh talking about Egyptian Parliamentary Elections of yesterday, he says: “Muslim Brotherhood managed to win unexpected seats yesterday in Cairo. They are not expected to take over the parliament, but in yesterday's “medium free” elections, the MB are expected to double if not triple their seats in parliament after stage 2 and stage 3.”


  • medium free elections!!!

    big pharaoh is talking BS as usual, the media and blogs are full of accounts of wholesale forgery and thugery, this is one of the worst elections we’ve ever had.

    Alaa, and anybody, what do you think truly free elections would yield in the way of results at this time? What percentage of the vote do you think the Brothers would obtain?
