Kefaya Organizing a Demonstration on December 12 Calling for Re-Elections
Abdel Halim Qandil, coordinator of the Kefaya Movement, revealed that the movement is contacting political parties and powers to organize a huge demonstration on December 12, 2010, entitled “Void”. The demonstration will call for re-elections of the Shura council, parliament and constituencies, under complete judicial supervision that guarantees transparency and fairness. The movement accused the ruling system of rigging the elections.
Qandil stated that the movement will recommend political powers and the opposition to become involved in not just rejecting rigging of elections but to also take positive actions and seek solutions to expose the rigging of the wills of people. He also called for a substitute parliament.
Kefaya is contacting different parties such as the Democratic Front, al-Ghad, al-Amal, Socialist-Revolutionary, Karama, the Muslim Brotherhood and the National Association for Change.
Kefaya is contacting them to discuss possible ways of combating rigging of the elections, and says that as boycotting elections will finish as soon as the elections are over, there should be another scenario to combat corruption and the rigging of elections by the system as well as dealing with the system as an illegal entity.
