Sawasya’s Focused Eyes on the Egyptian Parliamentary Election 2005

Interim Report Number (5), Cairo at 15:00 Pm

1st Round of Stage 3 of the Egyptian Parliamentary Election 2005-12-01

The Continuation of the Negative Phenomena during the 3rd Stage

At the start of the first round of the third stage of the parliamentary election which is taking place in 9 Governorates, the observers of the Sawasya’s Centre for Human Rights and Combating Discrimination (SCHRCD), amongst other NGO’s, are still continuing their monitoring of the main election’s features and negative phenomena during this stage which include-but not limited to- wide spread thuggery, tampering with electoral  lists on a large scale, prevention of electorates from casting their votes, the last minute collective registration and transportation of non-residents from outside the constituencies in concern, the rotating polling card, etc. These phenomena are still marring the election process and fundamentally undermine its integrity and its transparency.


Demiatte Governorate:
At the 4th constituency that belongs to Al-Zarqa’a Police District, our observers recorded the physical assault by Ahmed Al-Ghabari, a police officer, on two women journalists namely Rasha Azzab from The Arab Stance Newspaper and Dina Al-A’ami, a researcher at the American University in Cairo (AUC). Both of their IDs were withdrawn by the officer during their coverage of the election process at Daqahlah Village.
At the same constituency, our observers recorded incidents of collective registered votes of non-locals who work in a chain of schools owned by Al-Mandoh Al-Hosaini, the NDP Member of Parliament for Bolaaq and Omraniyah Constituency in Giza Governorates who were collectively transported to Al-Serow polling stations to vote for the NDP candidate, Colonel Al-Azab Al-Iraqi.

Al-Sharqiyah Governorate:
At Kafr Saqr constituency, our observers recorded repeated incidents of collective registry voting. They also recorded more than 4000 repeated votes in Al-Safiyah Village. Also recorded that the overseeing person in charge of ward 74, at Shenait Al-Harabwah Village, has stopped the vote casting process after the discovery of swapping of all electoral lists ( in a move designed to influence the ballot in favour of the NDP candidate by making it impossible for the locals to cast their votes).

Al-Daqahliyah Governorate:
At the 3rd constituency that belongs to Bani-Obaiyed Police District, our observers recorded a microbus ,with Daqahliyah Hire 4015 number plate, carrying a group of women thugs transported to Waish Al-Hajjar  Village to carry out physical assault on women electorates in the village to prevent them from casting their votes. The same scene was repeated in Meet-Badr Khameas Village, but this time with a microbus without a number plate!
At the 10th constituency that belongs to Minyaht Al-Nasser, our observers have recorded the stark differences between the electoral lists given to Ibrahim Awf, the Independent candidate, and those in the hands of the overseeing judges.
At the 1st constituency which belongs to Al-Mansorah Police District No 1, our observers have continuously recorded the use of the so-called rotating card (a vote rigging technique improvised and solely used by the NDP Gurus by which a polling card-which is not supposed to be in circulation outside the polling stations- marked up for the NDP candidate is given to an electorate who would drop it in the ballot box instead of the one handed to him inside the polling ward which he will conceal and hand back to the NDP representative outside the ward in return of agreed sums of money) in Khaled Al-Tokhi ward where only voting is permitted to those who carry the yellow card that belongs to the NDP.
