President Hosni Mubarak has called on the Egyptian citizens urging them to participate in the upcoming parliamentary elections and cast their votes.
The 82 year old ruler advised his nation to sensibly choose nominees best suited for the role of parliamentarian, stressing that they elect those enjoying fine reputations and adequate qualifications.
 Safwat al-Sherif, secretary-general of the ruling National Democratic Party relayed the President's message assuring the public that the scheduled elections would be run in what he described as a 'new climate of political reform'.The message included promises of a new electoral system which guarantee unique democratic representation
 Secretary-General Mufid Shehab, for the NDP's legal affairs, maintained that the elections would be the epitome of integrity highlighting the significant role of civil society organizations, and NGOs in monitoring the electoral process
Past elections in Egypt have been laced with unjust arbitrary arrests and indefinite detentions of political opposition mainly from the Muslim Brotherhood group who enjoy much popularity on the Egyptian streets. The Interior Ministry's security apparatus engage in campaigns under the abhorred 'emergency state law' arresting and invading the privacy of the member's homes in an attempt to intimidate opposition supporters and candidates.
