 Vice President of the Court of Appeals, Ayman Al-Wardani, resigned from his post as a member of the committee mandated with supervising the elections in the city of Arish in the North Sinai Governorate and submitted a written note on the serious irregularities that were committed during Sunday’s elections and submitted this note to the head of the Higher Election Commission (HEC).

A judge has announced his withdrawal from supervising Sunday's run-off vote, in a move that constituted the first official verification of the existence of violations during Egypt's recently concluded parliamentary elections.
Al-Wardani announced that after discovering a number of serious violations in Sunday’s elections, he had decided to waive all monetary rights related to the position. Al-Wardani claimed he had witnessed vote rigging at an Arish polling station that closed at 3 PM, thereby preventing voter access to ballot boxes.
He recounted a voter’s testimony alleging that one of the candidates had entered the polling station before it closed and rigged the ballots.
Al-Wardani is the first judge to testify to the existence of election fraud during this year's parliamentary polls. He is also the first to formally withdraw from participation in the run-off elections.
