The first day of the run-off for the first stage of the Egyptian People's Assembly elections 2011/2012 has ended, with turnout ranging from 20 to 25%, and a noticeable increase during the last hours of the election day.


The position of the FJP on the most important events on the first day of run-off voting:


1 – The party yet again extends its gratitude to the Egyptian people for their fortitude and positive outlook, which make us confident that this enlightened public will participate on the second day of the run-off, strongly and effectively, not just to vote for a candidate in preference to another, but to confirm the people’s determination to contribute in making their own future.


2 – The FJP emphasizes its full respect for the provisions and decisions of the Egyptian judiciary, especially the decision it made to suspend run-off voting in Cairo's 1st District for party lists and individuals. The FJP calls upon the High Judicial Elections Commission (HJEC) to act to avoid the mistakes for which it issued this ruling, and to ensure the safety procedures for the electoral process and democratic transition in Egypt.


3 – The FJP yet again renounces the practices of some parties and candidates who get involved in negative propaganda against the FJP, by either hiring unknown bandits who pose as if in election campaigns, in our name, outside the polling stations or distributing ‘communiques’ in the name of a number of our candidates including ‘statements’ to the effect that we support certain candidates or that we are coordinating with certain others. All such contraventions and misleading ‘communiques’ have nothing to do with the FJP or its candidates.


4 – The FJP calls upon the HJEC to provide the appropriate atmosphere for the sorting of votes, so as to avoid a repeat of the crises that occurred during the first round of elections.
