It means the electoral rounds are divided up according to the number of members of the People’s Assembly. In each round, there are 2 candidates: one from the upper classes, and one from the class of the workers and peasants. You must then choose only 2 from among all of the candidates in your round.

Six months have witnessed a separation of political force between the revolutionaries and those who rode the revolution’s wave to achieve their political and economic goals.

It is the Second Massacre, oh Lord of the Ka’ba

After this massacre, Field Marshal Muhammad Tantawi issued a short statement, but it was pure rhetoric, not a statement at all. He began with a consolation for the families of the martyrs, thinking that such rhetoric could bandage these families’ wounds. It is as though, in the rationale of these leaders, the blood of Egyptian men and women were cheap.

The Struggle Movement

Don’t know how to reclaim your rights? Unable to say anything because you don’t understand what’s yours and what’s expected of you?
