Protests in Egypt: Your experiences
We already have a president
Why voting in a rigged election that was fabricated for the sole purpose of giving legitimacy to the coup leader Al-Sisi who is in actual control of Egypt since the 3rd of July coup .
I take the decision early i am not voting in such silly and pathetic play after 10 months of continued massacres committed by army and police against Egyptian citizens there can't be free elections.
In 2012 there was a free presidential elections and we still got our legitimate president MR Morsi , i am not willing to give legitimacy to the de facto authorities , i wont give in the demand to bring all those who killed , injured or arrested innocent people to court .
after the coup and for 10 months we had a militaristic regime killing protesters , arresting journalists and preventing any kind of opposition so what kind of election we could expect from such regime and if i participated in this so called elections what kind of betrayal to those who fell during the protests that would be.
i had a concrete beleive in boycotting the so called elections and i hoped that others will have the courage to boycott it even though the threats from the current government to those who might not participate in the elections .
finally when the elections came most of the people didnt vote and voting centers had very low turnout that was a huge slap to Al-Sisi i took some picture for two empty voting centers on the third day of election the 28th of may in Alexandria as most of the people refused to give legitimacy to this murderer regime
