Religious Campaigning Prevailed in Assuit

Strikes among Polling Station Supervisors  Calls to Boycott Voting

Rallying and Bribing to Support Some Parties

Namely Freedom and Justice Party and Al Nour Party


In Cairo:


Our monitors have observed that several polling station supervisors went on strikes as they were paid their wages since they were allotted 1000 and were paid 500.


The cell phone at the operation room of the High Commission for Election was stolen. It was at stations number 118 and 119. The incident was reported at the police station of El Gamalya constituency.


In front of Farid abu Hadid School, there were campaigns for Freedom and Justice Party. The army intervened to stop these campaigns. In addition, there was a microbus with the number 628 NWM sticking posters advertising for the previously mentioned party and shuttling people to cast their votes for Freedom and Justice Party.


At Aly Abu Taleb School in Matarya and El Sayeda Aysha School in Maadi a decision was issued to keep only three employees only and lay off the rest that led to a strike among all employees.


In Zaitoon, one citizen assaulted an employee and the incident was reported to the police station. This citizen claims that the employee attacked him verbally as he was casting his vote inside the polling station as the employee urged him to mark the ballot paper behind the curtain meanwhile the citizen refused. This citizen was put under arrest.


At Nokrashy School polling station number 504, some people were campaigning for Mohamed Abdel Ghanny, a candidate of the Egyptian Bloc.


 In the following polling stations army personnel interfered to stop campaigning for candidates of Freedom and Justice Party and El Nour Party: Osman Maher School, Helmya el Tagreebia School for Girls in Saied Zeinab district, Hussein Edadyah Preparatory School and Gamalya Experimental School.


In front of El Taalaa Primary School and Mobtadayan Secondary School in Sayeda Zeinab district, some people urged voting people to annul their votes as an act of objection since the competition is narrowed to two unconstructive parties which are Freedom and Justice Party and the dissolved National Party.


Our monitors observed some bribing incidents in front of Des La Salle School in favor of Al Nour Pary (Abo Gabal) Mohamed Ahmed Gaber (individual).


Also, there were campaigning incidents in front of Abasseya Secondary School for Girls in favor of Egyptian Bloc and Freedom and Justice Party.


A brawl started in front of Al Salam Thanaweya School for Girls among the supporters of Freedom and Justice Party and Egyptian Bloc as each group was furious at the other because of pursuing campaigns at the polling station.


The candidate Hamdy Kandeel (independent candidate and a member of the dissolved National Party) distributed flyers denying any claim that he has joined the Egyptian Bloc or any coalition.


In front of Al Tahrir School and Mohamed Farid School, supporters of Freedom and Justice Party and Al Nour Party were campaigning for their parties using loud speakers.


In Alexandria:


At Abdel Khaleq School in Mandara constituency campaigning continued for Freedom and Justice Party and Al Nour Party, specifically Mostafa Mohamed Mostafa (workers quota ) and Hosny Mohamed Deweedar
(independent), and Sabry Salsam. This is in addition to buses shuttling voters and posters surrounding the polling station.


In Al Raml constituency there were campaigning incidents for Tarek Taalat Mostafa and a bus numbered 4571SHR shuttling voters from Mostafa Kamel district to Zezenia district (Abdel Aziz Gaweesh School).


In the third constituency of Moharam Bek at School Ameen El Refaee School, supporters of Freedom and Justice Party spread a rumor that the candidate, Aly Kamal Ahmed, of the Youth Revolution Coalition Party withdrew from the election and that voters should cast their votes for the Sheikh Mohamed Hassan candidate of Freedom and Justice Party.


Buses numbered 6217 SLY, 2739 SQR and 6258 shuttled people to vote for the candidate Mostafa Abdel Ghana and on the way to the polling station loudspeakers were used to campaign for the same candidate.


At many stations representatives of Al Nour Party and Freedom and Justice Party were appealing to people to cast their votes to these two parties as a supportive act toward their religion.


At Shades School in the third constituency a scuffle occurred between supporters of Al Nour Party and the supporters of Freedom and Justice Party. The army forces intervened and sent them 500 meters away from the polling station.


At Al Nil Preparatory School Moharam Bek constituency organizers and supervisors left the station and left the judge by himself because of the very weak turnover.


At Al Zohour School ten girls were misused in campaigning for Freedom and Justice Party. Girls were chanting religious songs and were holding posters for the alleged party.
