Egypt Legislative Elections in Three Phases, Under Full Judicial Supervision
Egypt Legislative Elections in Three Phases, Under Full Judicial Supervision
As Justice Mohamed Al-Tanboli announces that Egypt’s upcoming House of Representatives elections will be conducted in three stages, the FJP prepares its roadmap of electoral coalitions.

Justice Mohamed Al-Tanboli, member of the Higher Judicial Elections Commission (HJEC) Secretariat, announced that intensive meetings are taking place to adopt all measures for the electoral process, explaining that parliamentary elections will take place in three stages, so as to provide an opportunity for voters to cast their ballots, and also due to the large number of sub-committees involved – some 51,000 – which also makes it necessary for each stage to be held over two days.

"The elections will be conducted under full judicial supervision. Each committee will be supervised by its own judge. Currently, we are looking at reducing the number of voters for each voting site, to prevent overcrowding and congestion problems witnessed in previous elections."

Separately, Ahmed Abu-Baraka, member of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP)’s Legal Committee, affirmed that the map of electoral alliances is being readied, with many cooperation and coalition endeavors planned, adding that the FJP has a viable political program and welcomes all alliances that enrich this program.

"The FJP did not favor the ‘party candidate list’ system. It would have preferred the ‘individual or independent candidate’ system. But FJP members went along with other parties favoring the list system.

"Electoral Systems are set by current entitlements and societal circumstances. The political reality through which Egypt is going, after the writing and approval of the Constitution, makes it necessary to introduce a system which embraces both ‘lists’ and ‘individuals’, with 50% for workers and farmers."
