Last minute election round-up
Here is an article about how the government will not allow monitors of any kind in our election. And another about how some Egyptians can't imagine Life without Mubarak. It has some pathetic quotes too: While some Egyptians see Mubarak's 24 years in power as justification for change, for others it is a good enough reason alone to vote for him in the country's first presidential election on Wednesday. "It would be difficult for somebody else. He won't understand the people, how things work," said Saeed."Where's their experience?" he asked of the nine politicians challenging Mubarak in the elections. "We know him and he knows us," said Ibrahim Aziz, agreeing with Saeed that challengers including liberal politician Ayman Nour, 40, could not possibly measure up to the 77-year-old Mubarak, who is widely expected to win the election. Both said they would vote for Mubarak. "He took power 10 days after I was born," Ahmed Abdel Rabo, 24, said. "I'm a good omen for him and he's a good omen for me. It's enough that we haven't had a war during his presidency." Must... not... strangle!
