This is a defining moment for Egypt as this is when the country overcomes a phase that lasted for three years. This is the moment in which Egypt enters the phase of establishing the democratic state which we have all dreamt of - the phase where we all work together to build and develop the future.
All of this depends on the Egyptians’ participation in the elections as they line up to confirm the choices they made on January 25, June 30 and July 26. The Egyptians’ massive participation is what will send the world a message confirming that this is the Egyptians’ choice of rejecting terrorism and rejecting those who participated in hijacking the country under religious slogans.
Standing in queues to cast a vote on Monday and Tuesday is every Egyptian’s national duty - be it a man or woman, young or old. It’s the duty of the all the Egyptians who love Egypt and aspire a better future – it is the job of the Egyptians who surprised the world on January 25 and June 30 with their insistence and ability to achieve change and impose their will.
Today is a glorious day in Egypt’s history as it takes us a step forwardAbdel Latif el-Menawy
