The final results of the elections of the Alexandria Judges Club were declared on Saturday Jan, 5th, 2008. The turnout was more than 50% as 1080 members cast their votes out of the two thousand eligible voters.
 
Judge Ismail Adham Al Basyouni won the post of chairman of Alexandria judges club, with only 34 votes lead over judge Mahmoud Reda Al Khodairi.
 
Judge Ahmed Ali Mehanna (Al Khodairi"s slate) won the seat of the retired judges after garnering 579 votes. Councilors Abd Al-Aziz Abu Ayana won 657, Essam Abdul Hadi (630 votes) and Mohamed Kadri Eissa won votes (the three are affiliated to Al Basyouni"s slate).
 
The seats of the five judges were won by: Mahmoud Abu Shousha who garnered 640 votes, Adel Sharbash who garnered 629 votes, Imam Al Serafi who garnered 610 votes and Haitham Ahmed who garnered 551 votes (all of them belong to Al Khodairi"s slate), and Amr Hamed Karim (from Al Basyouni"s slate) and garnered 567 votes.
 
Al Khodairi called again for holding an international supervision on any presidential or parliamentary elections in Egypt especially after curbing the full judicial supervision over the elections. He said also that this international supervision isn"t an intervention in the internal affairs as many countries accept it.
 
He denied that he belongs to any religious or political group so that he can move freely but he denounced in his statements calling the Muslim Brotherhood an outlawed organization and said:" How do they call it outlawed while it has 88 MPs in parliament? And he added that people are the source of authorities.
 
After winning the election, Judge Ismail Al Basyouni confirmed that the Ministry of Justice did not support him against Al Khodairi and said that he has been working in the justice for 47 years and wasn"t mandated or transferred or assigned to work in any ministry or any other state body and that he has no relation whatsoever with the ministry, and he met minister Mamdouh Marie, since he became minister, only three times with chief justices of the courts of appeal.
 
Al Basyouni pointed out that his targets are similar to those of his predecessor Al Khodairi except for the style which he called protecting the judicial prestige and dignity of justice.
 
Al Basyouni confirmed that the club will not organize protest standings from now on because it is enough for the judge to look at the government so that it addresses his demand and that threatening with holding an extraordinary general assembly can move people in charge, not through protests or black flags or saying bad words about the People"s Assembly.
