They counted the ballots yesterday and the results are unsurprisingly towards a majority of the Muslim Brotherhood, winning in some villages like Kafr El Sheikh with an 80% (as I heard). But there is also the Egyptian Cluster (Al Kotla Al Masrya) which is several parties together but it is lead by the Naguib Sawiris party, Al Masryeen Al Ahrar (Free Egyptians).
The protesters in Tahrir square discovered several drug dealers and kicked them out of the square, along with several other people who were with them who had selling carts.
So, to retaliate the drug dealers came back with Molotov cocktails and other weapons, resulting in a total of 108 people with injuries.
People did not have problem with the privacy part because, I believe, the majority of voters already didn’t care if someone knew whom they voted for or not, many of them just tell the people standing in line with them. (Funny population :D)
Yes, it’s for the parliament and the ones for presidency are said to be next July, let’s hope the SCAF are sincere about doing it on time.
Take care and let me know if you have other questions.
By the way, a friend of mine Momen El Husseiny wrote a good article published on Jadaliyya about October 9th events.
