Egypt: Thousands Take To The Polls Despite Protesters’ Demand That Military Rulers Step Down

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 28, 2011


Yes people is the main driving force:

Egyptians have taken to the polls for the country’s first elections since the fall of Mubarak’s regime in February.

Reports suggest that queues formed early outside polling stations, with delays at a number of major stations causing lines to stretch several blocks long, and in some cases entirely encircling the schoolhouses where voting was taking place.‬

‪”They’re trying to make it delayed so that we get angry and go home,” a man cried outside a still-closed polling center in the poor, mixed neighborhood of Shoubra, an hour after it was meant to open. “But we’ll show them. We will stay here and we will vote.”‬

The vote has gone ahead despite nine days of mass demonstrations, with protesters calling for an end to military rule before elections take place.

“We reject any resolution taken by the military council – except for the handover of power to an authority that we approve. Then we will be making the decisions in Egyptian politics,” said a Tahrir demonstrator on Sunday.

More than 40 protesters have been killed and around 2,000 injured in the past nine days.

In a statement on Sunday, Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, the leader of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), said that Egypt was “at a crossroads”.

“Either we succeed – politically, economically and socially – or the consequences will be extremely grave and we will not allow that,” he said.

Cairo Protest Of Egypt Elections Reach Second Day Of Unrest (LIVE UPDATES)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 20, 2011

CAIRO — Firing tear gas and rubber bullets, Egyptian riot police on Sunday clashed for a second day in downtown Cairo with thousands of rock-throwing protesters demanding that the ruling military quickly announce a date to hand over power to an elected government.

The police battled an estimated 5,000 protesters in and around the capital’s Tahrir Square, birthplace of the 18-day uprising that toppled authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak in February. Tear gas filled the air as protesters, many chanting “freedom, freedom,” pelted the police with rocks.

Sunday’s clashes, which come a day after two people were killed and hundreds wounded in similar unrest in the capital and other major cities, are stoking tensions eight days before the start of the country’s first post-Mubarak parliamentary elections. The violence reflects the rising public anger over the slow pace of reforms and apparent attempts by Egypt’s ruling generals to retain power over a future civilian government.
