Discussions Discussion Internet’s Role in Popular Uprising

Egyptian voters disillusioned…

Islamic parties have reportedly taken an overwhelming lead in the opening round of Egypt’s first parliamentary elections since Mubarak’s fall.

­The Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party gained 40% of the vote, with the fundamentalist al-Nour Party claiming around 25%. However, the results are not final, as most parties are set to go through two further election rounds over the next two months. But many in the streets feel their votes will carry little weight.

Today, the 2nd day of Egypt’s landmark parliamentary election, the first since Hosni Mubarak’s ouster.

The turnout on the first day was massive, despite security concerns and turmoil over a deadly spate of violence in the week before the balloting. It reflects the nation’s determination to break away from the past after 10 months of frustration over how the military rulers who took over from Mubarak are handling the transition.

Excellent edition of Inside Story, from Cairo. Is the military helping or subverting the democratic transition?
