Egypt: the parody of an election

From 26 to 28 March, Egyptians were called to vote for the presidential elections.

The one who has ruled Egypt with an iron hand since 2014 was candidate for his own succession and, as for Putin, there was no doubt in the re-election of Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sissi: his only opponent was Moussa Mostafa Moussa, a former support of the field marshal… Hard to see indeed in these elections the signs of democracy and political pluralism, so much the ballot boxes seemed well guarded!

Published by the press on Thursday, March 29, the first polls indicated al-Sissi as the winner with more than 90% of the votes – these results will however be confirmed and proclaimed on Monday, April 2.

Sissi has orchestrated a true cult around his person, settled an autocratic regime and bet all on security to the detriment of rights and freedoms. He continues his reign as master of Egypt for this new electoral term.
