    Default Egyptian Elections: An Act of Deception

    Mohamed ElBaradei has called for a boycott of the Egyptian elections which are scheduled to take place in April. He describes the elections as an "Act of Deception" and says he will not be part of the deception.

    ElBaradei has history in this. He did call for a boycott previously in 2010 to expose the "Sham Democracy".

    Egypt dissolved the lower house of it's parliament some months ago but the upper house remains intact and functioning.

    So much for Democracy in Egypt. I would trust Mohamed ElBaradei long before I would trust the Egyptian President Morsy. ElBaradei is the former head of the IAEA.

    These will be the first elections since Egypt's highest court dissolved the lower house of parliament in June, and it will be the first full parliament in Morsy's presidency. The upper house, the Shura Council, has continued to meet.

    The current governing party are buying votes via their management of state handouts.

    The whole state system is a sham, and will cause a civil war....
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Could the CIA kindly mind its own business. The Opposition are bad losers. The Egyptian people have rejected liberalism. I am a secularist but this needs to be acknowledged. As for buying votes, remember that the CIA bought demonstrators in the 1953 Iranian coup. Are they doing it again here?
