Outright Christian slap in the face
Nothing like showing dangerous contempt for the Christians having the elections on their major holidays, Palm Sunday and Easter. This shows people that Morsy thinks Christians are nothing and should not participate in any elections. This is a very bad precedent. What would happen if elections were held on a Muslim holy day, all hell would break lose.

attempt to divide opposition.
This is a clever move to divide the opposition. The opposition should unite and put forward a common list. If opposition vote is divided, they will get few seats.And again elected members will not be truly representative.
