Tensions Rise between Judges and the HEC
A request has been submitted by Mohamed Mikki of the Supreme Judges Council calling on the High to prepare a report on judicial monitors during Egypt’s recent parliamentary polls which were held amid accusations from judges and election monitoring groups of vote-rigging.
The HEC has maintained that it has, in fact, planned to issue a report covering the issues related to judicial monitoring.
Former president of the Judges Club, Mahmoud Al-Khodairy, denounced the recent parliamentary elections, slamming the violations and labelling the polls as fraudulent. Al-Khodairy described the elections as the worst in Egypt’s history, adding that in all reality Egypt has not seen any since 1952.
