In el-Klasia village, police lay siege to polls. Only the supporters of the National Democratic Party are allowed to give votes. Three representatives of the Brotherhood’s nominee are detained.
 
In polling center no 133, the voting is public; there is no curtain. A monitor of a human right organization is impeded to oversee the voting process.
 
In el-Mafragia village, police terrorize voters, for example, if voters did not elect the NDP’s candidate, they would be detained in a cop van. In addition, some electorate are searched.
 
On the eve of voting, police stormed homes of the Brotherhood’s representatives. In addition, 300 Brotherhood’s members were summoned to the police station to be warned against the participation in the poll. Four were taken into custody, plus.
