Police officials manipulate election and rig electoral cards
Security forces reportedly broke into polling stations located in four villages in Borollos and Hamoul, Kafr al-Sheikh districts. Police manipulated electoral cards in favor of National Democratic Party candidate, Essam Abdel Ghaffar, sources said.
Ghaffar is competing for the Professionals seat against independent candidate, Hamdeen Sabbahi.
Fierce clashes erupted this morning between supporters of National Democratic Party and Muslim Brotherhood candidates, after representatives of Brotherhood candidate, Ali al-Sheshtawi, were denied access to polling stations for not holding the required candidacy representation documentation issued by police.
