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

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?
