Abu Bakr Abdel Rahman El-Rawy, a member of Social Alliance Party in Qena governorate, has said he has in his possession 15 voter ballots from the first round of presidential elections that took place 23-24 May marked for Hamdeen Sabbahi, found thrown in sugar cane bushes close to Garagos polling station in Qoos.

El-Rawy told the Ahram news portal that he was surprised to find the ballots in a black plastic bag Saturday, and that they belong to Al-Salam and Al-Obour schools, and were all marked for Sabbahi. He added that he found hundreds of such voting ballots, but people in the neighborhood gathered around him and many managed to grab the ballots from him. 

Abbas Gaber, Sabbahi's campaign coordinator, said that the Sabbahi campaign will report the case immediately.

Nasserist candidate Hamdeen Sabbahi, the favoured contender among revolutionary voters, fought an impressive electoral rearguard action, finishing a not-so-distant third with 4,739,983 votes.

Election
I am sorry but I feel the election was not far or just. There are many people that could not vote because they work away from their home towns. There has been plenty of time to do a census on exactly where people live so there is more than a quarter of the country not voted. Also theere are a lot of foriegners that live here and could not vote. If Egytpians lived in a European country they have the right to vote so why can't the same thing happen here?
