Egypt Releases Official Vote Tallies for Presidential Election

On May 28, Egyptian election officials released a final, official tally for the presidential election. See the results here at wikipedia (scroll down to the end of the article). The candidate who received the most votes ended up with 24.77%, less than the unofficial tally had reported. The second-place finisher ended up with 23.66%, also less than the unofficial tally had shown. Thanks to Thomas Jones for this news.

    Top-2 primary advances most radical candidates to the runoff.

  3. Notice how there are no women candidates? Ever wonder about Muslim Sisterhood, and why they don’t have any choices?

    There is a solution, and it’s as simple as 1, 2, 3.

    Currently single-winner district elections attract the meanest and most aggressive males who are trying to be better than everyone else and there is just about no chance of a gender-balanced ticket.

    If you’re ready for more guaranteed gender balance and an alternative to single winner district elections, check out the virtual 8th USA Parliament. Simply by alternating genders, 2/3rds of the voters are mathematically guaranteed to elect the top female and top male (or visa versa), under ranked choice voting (RCV).

    I am demonstrating this concept, and everyone is welcomed to participate for free.

    Check out my sample marked “eballot”, where I have ranked 588 names, and if you like this concept and you’d like to participate too, please try to locate a “eballot” on the parliament’s site or contact us for a paper ballot, on the site http://www.usparliament.org.

    Your vote is guaranteed to help arrange the make-up of the USA Parliament, and every member who garners 1/1001ths (or .999%) plus one vote of the total votes cast will be elected to the team. And, the chance of electing our president and vice president as a gender balanced team are guaranteed when 2/3rds of the voters alternate genders when voting for #1 and #2.

    Here’s a sample marked “eballot” here:

    How many top 2 elections in which the top 2 got less than half the total votes ??? — i.e. TWO plurality extremists.

    Good luck to poor suffering Egypt in avoiding more tyranny.

    P.R. and nonpartisan App.V.

  5. It’s interesting to me that Shabahi, the Leftist candaite came in third, much more popular than the Egyptian media and the foreign media had given his candidacy credit for.

    It will be interesting to me to see how his voters turn out in the run off. I can see the various apparachik candaites supporting the former apparachik Prime Minister, and the various Islamists candaites supporting the theocrat, but the 20% that supported Shabai are the real wild card here. Maybe they will all stay home, like the majority of voters did in this first round of presidential voting? I can not see myself being able to vote for either of the two run off candidates.
