One Response to “Ahmed al-Assy”

  1. If they hold an election in three stages they will be able to manipulate the end result very easily. If they see who is winning in the first phase they will know what to do in the second phase.

    It the Egyptians allow that to happen they would be very foolish. A dictatorship. A dictator would permit elections in three phases!
