1st time ever true Presidential elections in girl hating, book burning Pyramidland and the chiz is gon be off the hook for the mommie land of all of Araby!
A dozen candidates are vying for the post. Experts say any two of the five or six leading candidates could enter a second round run-off election scheduled for June 16 and 17, with the final results being released no later than June 21.
The vote pits "Slamists against secularists and revolutionaries against members of the former regime.
Whoever does win is expected to set Egypt’s course for decades to come. Their election may well determine the role of religion in Arab political life; it could decide how much influence the Egyptian military will continue to wield, and it may place strains on Egypt’s peace treaty with Little Satan, thereby determining the prospects of peace throughout the region.
Whoa! Since the President's powers and abilities have yet to be defined anything could happen captain!
Cats hot for sump sump Sharia have plenty of choices as political m"Hammedism is fielding three formidable candidates. Secularists have a few choices some what - yet - it's the game of the Least Suck Option.
Take religion out of the mix and it looks like a class room version of reactionism - day dreaming of a glorious past, fretting over being done wrong and affixing blame on others:
An inflated sense of collective grandeur, stolen past glory, and whatever went wrong with the nation, it's always someone else's fault: the crusaders, the moguls, the colonial masters, the Americans, Little Satan, the Shias, the Persians.And Aegypt's Electile Dysfunction may actually lead to Aegypt"s Next Revolution!
A fierce battle is expected over who is to draw up the job specs for the new president: the elected parliament or the unelected military junta? And should this happen before or after the final result of the vote is known? No one knows yet.
It could even get bumpier after 1 July – the date the new president is supposed to take over. None of the underlying tensions (military versus civilian and religious versus secular) have been resolved and are not likely to be any time soon.
While Egypt’s presidential vote is supposed to end the military-led transition to democracy, fears persist the country’s generals may try to continue to rule from behind a democratic facade. Failure to hand over power to a civilian government could result in renewed street protests and more bloodshed.
