Feloul Or Islamist? Your Choice

Posted on the 28 May 2012 by Warigia @WarigiaBowman
Dear readers
The first free and fair elections for President in Egypt's history are underway. Mohammed Morsy, the Muslim Brotherhood candidate is in a runoff with Ahmed Shafiq, a Mubarak appointed prime minister.
This leaves Egyptians with a stark choice. Morsy is arguably a revolutionary, but his strong, conservative religious views may make women, Christians, and secular people nervous. By contrast, Shafiq is definitely secular, and very experienced, but he is the preferred candidate of the Supreme Council of Armed Forces, and he is a Mubarak man. I believe that we are trapped between Scylla and Charybdis as was Homer, in the Odyssey.
Here is the take of the Voice of America.
The Egyptian Independent reports on the runoff.
El Ahram analyzes why Amr Moussa polled fifth place.
It is going to be a rough road ahead for Egyptians, and the region. At least this election is exciting!
