The Supreme Administrative Court upheld a verdict that orders the cancellation of the parliamentary elections’ first round in El-Sahel district, Cairo.
The Supreme Administrative Court upheld on Monday a verdict that orders the cancelation of the parliamentary elections’ first round in El-Sahel district, Cairo, due to major violations.
Fifteen ballot boxes were missing while 75 more damaged, and thus the results do not reflect the will of the voters, according to the Supreme Administrative Court’s final judgment.
The verdict was returned yesterday after some candidates filed 27 complaints against the violations that took place in El-Sahel.
Candidates’ supporters intensively crowded in El-Sahel’s polling stations in the first round, which enabled some forgers to mess with the ballot boxes.
The elections’ first round, which took place on 28 and 29 November, are now to be repeated in the rundown district as the ruling is final and cannot be appealed against.
Previously, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) had appealed against the verdict, which was also rejected by the Supreme Committee for Elections as well.
The verdict means the ongoing runoffs of the first round in El-Sahel will be halted too.
