  • Op-ed: Listen to the women, Morsi

    The assertive women's vote may well tip the balance towards a more liberal democracy in Egypt in the future.

    BY WAFAA WALI I volunteered as a civil proctor in the second round of the referendum on Egypt’s new constitution. I had been part of the revolution since the beginning, have done the walks, cheering, dangerous bits and pieces, contributions, distribution of flyers and collection of data.  But I have not become a member of any political or social group. I still somehow value my position as an officially non-aligned member of the community. I attended the crash training session on the rights and role of a civil proctor the night before the event. Early next day, a bus drove…

    BY DALIA RABIE Cairo: The low turnout at the presidential election has been attributed to many factors, from the lack of faith in the electoral process to the scorching heat. But another factor that is often overlooked is the inaccessibility of polling stations to people with disabilities. Concerned parties hold the Presidential Election Committee (PEC) responsible for the failure to make polling stations accessible to people with disabilities, thus excluding a significant number of voters.
