 Anwar Esmat Sadat, is submitting a complaint to the public prosecutor accusing NDP’s Ahmed Ezz and the party’s bureau of poll rigging as they are ordered to facilitate fraud and bullying to ensure the success of the ruling party's candidates in the Egyptian elections.
 
In his complaint, he said the massive fraud that marred the elections at the hands of NDP's thugs has put an end to the entire political life of the country and has consistently returned NDP-dominated parliaments, setting aside people's desire to freely choose their own representatives. The NDP's relentless pursuit to sideline national political powers and fabricate a political vacuum will disrupt attempts of transition to real democracy and increase tension between different sections of society making them feel marginalized and useless.

Sadat also sent a formal letter to the President of the Supreme Committee for Elections, Mr. Abdul Aziz Omar, demanding that he call on the army to protect the polling stations from the bullying and fraud committed by police and NDP supporters. Calling on the army to protect polling stations is supported by Article No. 26, Act No. 73, of 1956, Regulating the Exercise of Political Rights, which states that Mr. Chancellor/President of the Electoral Commission has the right to request military force (armed forces) when necessary. Moreover, the law states that forces cannot be directly inside the polling station unless absolutely necessary and called upon by the President of the Commission. Instead, forces must be in the periphery of the polling station, outside of it, to ensure safety and wellbeing of the voters.
