Voting in region two of Egypt’s People’s Assembly elections showed continued enthusiasm on the part of Egyptians to exercise their right to select the candidates and parties of their choice in the country’s first open parliamentary elections, the National Democratic Institute (NDI) said in a statement released here today.

NDI’s region two election delegation included 32 accredited witnesses from 15 countries. Their findings indicated significant improvements in several logistical aspects of electoral administration, including a larger number of polling stations that opened on time, fewer instances of assisted voting on the part of polling station staff and party agents, and less campaigning inside polling centers.
