Voting Allowed In Egypt

Nearly 10 months ago, the dictator of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, had lost his throne. When the Egyptians finally thought they were free of a dictator, the military took power. The citizens are now allowed to vote for 490-seat People's Assembly, and for the 390-seat upper house. The upper house is who is in main power. The voting started Monday, November 28, 2011, and will end March 2012.

The polls will stay in provinces for two days, which worries some people because the ballots may be rigged overnight. People can vote for the military, the Muslim Brotherhood, or other Islamist leaders in the election.

Literals, leftists, Christians, and pious Muslims who are against mixed religion are voting against the Muslim Brotherhood. More women are voting than men, which is destroying the notion that women should not be as respected as men. The election will continue in multiple stages; different provinces will get turns to vote, two days.
