Purchasing voters’ votes in America…and neglecting electronic voting in some states
Violations in public elections at the international level seem to be identical. This is clear in some events watched by Maat in the American presidential elections, so peoples and governors in different places of world may agree about it. Although the American administration announced many times in front of the whole world that it is the teacher of democracy, but it still suffer some political illnesses.
Maat watched the war of rumors between the two candidates; the democratic Barak Obama, and the republican Jone Makeen; although these rumors may be realities!! But supporters of every candidate always search for political scandals about the other side and they work to violate his fame before the expected day of final elections in the coming 4 November.
Even in this kind of conflict- spreading bad things as it is in the Egyptian saying- American people differed form other peoples. Presidential candidates appeared smiling in front of cameras of space channels, mass media, and in journals while they are exchange accusations and criticism. The most remarkable thing is purchasing votes which we think that it is local Egyptian invention of businessmen who wants to be under the parliament”s umbrella or who wants to make complement to the system and its men. Normal watcher of the American elections can easily observe this phenomenon.
In other things American elections surpasses others especially in Egypt, as the administration allow citizens to resign their names in electoral tables while they are voting, but this optimism may be used badly as one person may resign him self in more than one state so he can support one candidate with two votes or more. We mentioned this matter in Egypt, so a judicial committee may purify electoral tables before any public elections. And we called for allowing citizens to resign their name in more wide periods every year.
At the same time in which Arab activists call for their governments to start the system of electronic voting because it is hard to forgery voter”s will through it, we found that the United States of America return to paper voting in many states claiming that screens of displaying data may be affected while touching the machines and voters” gathering and that electronic voting may have some wrongs.
Maat is watching precisely events of American elections, and aspects of electoral and informative campaigns started by candidates of the two parties Democratic and Republican; Jone Makeen and Barak Obama. And we will start to visit headquarters of absent voting.
