    Descriptive info: Project Rakeeb - Second Round - First Statement.. 14-12-2011, 18:56.. : 565 |.. First Interim Statement.. December 14, 2011, 2:00 p.. m.. Project Rakeeb notes continued inconsistencies.. in election practices, denial of access to accredited observers.. Continued reports of active political campaigning,.. late opening of polling stations in some districts.. Project Rakeeb is joint collaboration between two Egyptian civil society organizations the Egyptian Association for Community Participation Enhancement (EACPE) and the Egyptian Association for Development and Dissemination of Legal Awareness (EADDLA).. For the first day of the second round of voting in the People s Assembly Elections, Project Rakeeb deployed 471 non-partisan citizen observers in all nine governorates where elections are taking place.. Rakeeb observers were deployed to a statistically-sound, random and representative sample of polling stations and have been sending observation reports via text message to a Central Data Center in Cairo.. Opening Time.. Percentage.. Before 9 AM.. 91%.. Between 9 and 11 AM.. 9%.. After 11 AM.. 0%.. Project Rakeeb has found that the vast majority of polling stations opened prior to 9 AM.. However, some polling stations opened late due to the late arrival of polling officials or sensitive materials, such as ballot papers, ink, or voters lists.. Below is a breakdown of the opening times:.. Notably, in Giza, 16 percent of polling stations where observers were deployed opened after 9 AM.. In a trend from the first round, Project Rakeeb observers continued to be denied access or expelled from polling stations despite having received accreditation.. In most cases, observers have been expelled by judicial supervisors however in two cases observers were denied access by armed forces personnel.. The expulsion of observers by armed forces personnel constitutes a flagrant interference in the electoral process and undermines the integrity of the process and the independence  ...   10 cases in Giza and 10 cases in Beni Suef;.. 56 incidents of active campaigning by political contestants in and around polling stations, including 12 cases in Beheira;.. 26 incidents of the presence of campaign materials inside polling stations, most often of Freedom and Justice Party and Nour Party, and 2 reported incidents of the presence of campaign materials of individual candidates;.. 10 incidents of political party representatives using religious slogans to influence voters;.. 6 incidents of political party or candidate agents being expelled from polling stations;.. 3 incidents of vote buying, including 2 in Menoufiya and 1 in Giza;.. 2 incidents of circular voting in Beheira; and.. 4 incidents of violence, including 2 in Beheira.. Project Rakeeb calls upon the Supreme Judicial Committee for Elections (SJCE) to uphold its commitment to address inconsistencies and errors in first round.. Specifically, Project Rakeeb recommends SJCE:.. Ensure that observers who have been accredited by the SJCE are guaranteed access to polling stations in accordance with the Code of Conduct, international election standards and regulations of the SJCE itself;.. Ensure that security officials are acting in accordance with the law and not interfering in the work of the SJCE.. Armed forces interference has a negative impact on the credibility and transparency of the election process and undermines SJCE authority; and.. Use its authority to prevent campaigning in and around polling centers;.. Project Rakeeb also calls upon all political parties to refrain from active political campaigning and cease use of religious slogans in accordance with Egyptian law.. Project Rakeeb commends voters on their participation in the second round of elections, despite confusion in three proportional representation districts on the eve of the second round of elections..

    Descriptive info: Project Rakeeb - First Round - First Interim Statement.. 29-11-2011, 20:10.. : 595 |.. November 28, 2011, 3:00 p.. For the first day of the first round of voting in the People s Assembly Elections, Project Rakeeb deployed 413 non-partisan citizen observers in all nine governorates where elections are taking place.. Rakeeb observers were deployed to a statistically-sound, random and representative sample of polling stations and have been transmitting observation reports via text message to a Central Data Center in Cairo.. Rakeeb observers have reported large queues of voters in many polling stations.. Although the voting process has been reportedly slow, voters have demonstrated patience thus far in the process.. Despite concerns of possible violence due to ongoing political unrest, observers have reported that voting has been largely calm without incident, with very few incidents of violence or intimidation.. However, there have been some problems, most notably delayed openings of polling stations; observers being denied access or being expelled from polling stations; and active campaigning by political party supporters at polling stations.. Specifically:.. Approximately 62 percent of polling stations where observers were deployed opened before 9 AM; 33 percent opened between 9 AM and 11 AM; and approximately 5 percent of polling stations had not yet opened as of  ...   the Higher Election Commission (HEC), most notably in Cairo, Alexandria and Fayyoum.. Rakeeb observers have reported some incidents of active political campaigning at polling stations, most often by representatives and supporters of Freedom and Justice Party.. Rakeeb observers have also reported inconsistent practices due to the lack of clarity of the HEC procedures; this was noted in the manner by which judicial supervisors dealt with unstamped ballot papers, parties and candidates campaigning within polling centers premises and the treatment of accredited observers.. Project Rakeeb calls upon the HEC to expeditiously address problems which have hampered the opening of polling stations and ensure that all voters are provided with sufficient opportunity to cast their ballots.. We also call upon HEC and judicial supervisors to ensure that observers who have been accredited by the HEC are guaranteed access to polling stations in accordance with the Code of Conduct and international election standards.. Moreover, Project Rakeeb also calls upon all political parties to refrain from campaign activities in accordance with Egyptian law.. Project Rakeeb commends Egyptian voters for turning out in large numbers to participate in the election process, despite the political and security situation..
