Problems with the Sadat candidacy

When i first heard of Fagr Talat Sadat- the late President Sadat's nephew- decision to run in the egyptian presidential elections, the first thing that came to my mind was that the egyptian presidential elections is starting to eerily resemble the California Recall election, i.e. it's slowly turning into a big joke or a farce. The new Sadat's candidacy is a prime example of that. The man doesn't have the support of either his party ( his memebrship was stripped) nor the Late Sadat's family. As for his political platform, well, check it out: Sadat, an opposition member of parliament for the al-Ahrar or Liberal party, said he stands for the release of all political detainees and higher standards of living. Ehh... Riiight! This is becoming more depressing by the minute!
