Egypt’s Fattah El-Sisi Ratifies Egyptian Electoral Process…

Trying to have a political democratic process where a violent minority sect cannot disrupt nor manipulate a peaceful majority desire is challenging.  

el-sisi 2EGYPT – On the same day he left to China for political and economic talks, Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi ratified an anticipated electoral constituencies law, the final prerequisite for holding parliamentary elections, which would conclude the country’s transitional roadmap.

The law drafted by Egypt’s government last week will divide the country into 237 constituencies for individual candidacy seats and another four for party list seats.

The parliament will be comprised of a total of 567 seats, 120 for party-based ‎candidates, 420 for independents and 27 for presidential ‎appointees, as stipulated by an elections law issued by former interim president Adly Mansour in June, a day before El-Sisi’s inauguration as president.

The constituencies’ law in its current form was controversial as some political groups worried it may be ruled unconstitutional, raising doubts as to whether it satisfies article 102 in the 2014 constitution which stipulates that constituency seats be representative of the country’s electorate.

Despite controversy, a statement issued by presidential spokesperson Alaa Youssef on Monday assured the law’s legitimacy, saying that the law allows for each MP to represent equal segments of the electorate.

Youssef added that each constituency has the same number of voters and that governorates would all be equally represented inside the House of Representatives, regardless of their varied populations.

The presidency said in a November press statement that elections will be held in the first quarter of 2015.

The first two steps of the roadmap set at the time of the ouster of former Islamist president Mohamed Morsi’s in 2013 were the passing of a new constitution and presidential elections, both of which were completed in 2014. (read more)

    Take out the word “sect”, or replace it with “faction”, and one could be talking about places much closer to home. We have a lot to learn from Egypt. And the world’s Muslims who desire peace but don’t know how to get there, have a lot to learn from the Egyptian mainstream, and the Egyptian military that understands it.

    Who would have ever thought that during our lifetime it would be an Egyptian leader who stands as the brightest beacon of a fair constitution and democratic electoral process with enforceable safeguards?

    El-Sisi is a giant of wisdom and leadership.

    And we have o-bama.

    Egypt has entered the light again as we shrink back into the darkness. A brave and bold people demanded an El-Sissi while a lazy, ignorant, greedy and violent people demanded an o-bama. It will take three generations to move past the shame and devastation o-bama has visited on us – at our bidding, and only if we can force a different path.

    Did I read recently, Obama and Hilary are in trouble for aiding/manipulating the election to get muslim brotherhood, leader Morsi elected in Egypt?
    After her husbands arrest, Morsi’s wife was talking about releasing the letters Hilary Clinton wrote to her. I would love to read those letters. Is Hilary muslim? What is her fascination with islam?
