Selection is by Election
To complement Egypt's democracy, Governors should be selected by voting.

Ridiculous!
This is ridiculous! Has the country run out of any good, self respected people besides members of the Muslim Brotherhood? Governors should be elected by the people and not appointed by the president. All is see lately is total dominance of the MB/FJP!

Qualification first...political affiliation is secondary.
As long as the appointed people has the qualification...then the President is doing the right thing, Regardless of the political affiliation.

re: just swallow
Who said I was happy with Mubarak's regime and his "inner circle"? What the MB is doing is a replica of the NDP- complete dominance of all political posts.. Having waited "80 years" does not justify that!
