The Latest Prices for Bullies : 800 L.E for the Sword and Chains Fighter, 500 L.E for Group Fights, and 150L.E for Intimidation
Over the last weeks the wage-prices of bullies increased and their market flourished as they were successful to intimidate voters and elections officers. The wage-price for a single bully ranged from 150 L.E to 800L.E per day.
While the price of the intimidation bully (who is only used to intimidate and not physically harm the supporters of the opponent candidate) was registered at 150 L.E, the price of the bully who is ready to enter into actual group fights increased to 500 L.E per day. Meanwhile , the super-bully (the one who is ready to use weapons ) reached a record of 800 L.E per day.
Similar to the flourishing bullies’ market, the market of purchased votes all flourished. The price of a single vote ranged from 50 L.E in popular slums such as Imbaba to 500L.E in more posh quarters such as Madinat nasr.
Mohamed Zarea’, the Coordinator of the National Campaign for the Observance of Elections , affirmed that elections’ observers have recorded down all the violations in the two phases that have taken place. He said that the security forces’ negligence of the bullies who had the upper hand in the management of the voting in some districts, was the most flagrant violation.
