Now that an Egyptian court has ordered the government to ensure that Egyptian expatriates can vote in the upcoming parliamentary elections what do you expect?
The government will comply, but through inefficiency and/or ill intent will make it nearly impossible for Egyptian expats to exercise their right to vote in a free and fair manner.  (58.26 %)
127 votes
The government will ignore the ruling, under various pretexts, as Egyptian governments have done for decades.   (32.57 %)

Egyptian expats, supported by many inside the country, are lobbying to win the right to vote in Egypt's first post-revolution elections. What is your position?
Egyptians living abroad should be granted the right to vote in presidential elections, but not in constituency-based parliamentary elections.   (10.71 %)
44 votes
Egyptians living abroad are full citizens and should have the full rights and privileges due to a citizen. Tunisian expats took part in their parliamentary elections and so should Egyptians.  (72.99 %)
300 votes
Egyptians living abroad are subject to various influences in their countries of residence and therefore should be allowed to vote only if they return to the country.   (5.11 %)
21 votes
The logistics of millions of Egyptians voting abroad are impossible to deal with in the current circumstances, so expat voting should be postponed until such a time as these challenges can be efficiently met.   (7.3 %)

Electoral law issued by SCAF and combining individual candidacy and lists systems has been rejected by the bulk of the nation’s political parties and movements. What is your position?
I agree to the law as it has been issued by SCAF; it would be unconstitutional to make the list system account for 100 of seats as the political parties demand.  (13.64 %)
30 votes
I wholly reject the current electoral law, which is tailored for the defunct ruling party remnants. I agree to a 100% list system as demanded by the parties.  (56.82 %)
125 votes
It would be sufficient to adjust the ratio, making the list system account for 70 or 80% of seats, while avoiding unconstitutionality.   (10.91 %)

The September 9th protest before the Israeli embassy has triggered a fierce debate within Egypt. What is your position?
The protest at the Israeli embassy was totally misguided; it took away focus from the original demands of the Friday of Correcting the Path, deteriorated into violence and lawlessness and undermined Egypt’s international image.  (54.89 %)
802 votes
I support the protesters’ bringing down the concrete wall before the embassy, which was an ugly reminder of Israel’s notorious Separation Wall, but I reject the storming of the Israeli embassy facility, which is flagrant violation of the law.   (17.25 %)
252 votes
I fully support both the bringing down of the wall and the storming of the embassy facility. Only Egyptian protesters were hurt in the events, while Israel’s killing of six Egyptian soldiers has yet to generate even a proper apology.   (22.45 %)

With the fall of Gaddafi’s brutal regime the promise of a fully-fledged Arab spring seems one step closer to fulfillment. What are your expectations?
Democratic revolutions are bound to sweep the Arab world. Syria and Yemen will follow, opening the door for a new age of freedom and democracy in the Arab world.   (17.11 %)
154 votes
Fundamentalist Islamists, backed by oil rich Saudi Arabia, will hijack the Arab revolutions and create regressive, religion-based autocracies.   (25.78 %)
232 votes
There will be no uniform Arab pattern. Democracy will succeed in some places, fail in some, and make limited headway in others.   (51.44 %)

The Israeli killing of 5 Egyptian soldiers in Egyptian territory has enraged the Egyptian public, while the government tried to contain the crisis. What is your view?
Egypt should immediately downgrade diplomatic relations with Israel, throw out the Israeli ambassador and recall the Egyptian ambassador from Tel Aviv, demand restitution for the victims, halt gas exports to Israel and open the Rafah border with Gaza  (34.58 %)
452 votes
Israel’s expression of sorrow is sufficient, especially when accompanied by a joint investigation into the incident. We should maintain good ties with Israel.  (17.52 %)
229 votes
Israel was pursuing terrorists in accordance with the right of hot pursuit, and the killing of the Egyptian soldiers was an unintentional error. Egypt should cooperate with Israel in hunting down terrorists.  (29.07 %)
380 votes
Israel’s criminal killing of Egyptian soldiers should not go unpunished. It absolves Egypt of the peace treaty, which Egypt should unilaterally declare null and void.   (10.64 %)

I don’t have a position on the matter.   (8.19 %)

It took enormous and sustained popular pressure to bring Mubarak to public trial. What are your feelings on where the trial might be heading?
It’s all theater; the officers are bowing and saluting the prisoners, the prosecution has deliberately bungled the case, and Mubarak will be acquitted.   (25.95 %)
178 votes
It is a historic trial, the first time in modern Arab history that people bring their ruler to account for his crimes. Mubarak is bound to be convicted.   (30.76 %)
211 votes
Mubarak has done great things for Egypt; it is a great shame that he and his sons should be humiliated in this fashion. This trial should be disbanded with due apologies to the Mubaraks.  (13.41 %)
92 votes
There are many loopholes in the case; the security bodies are for the defendants, but Mubarak, his sons and cronies will be convicted for their crimes.  (18.95 %)

The ruling Military Council and Prime Minister Essam Sharaf have made substantial concessions to the demands of the second wave of the Egyptian revolution. What is your position?
The administration has done more than enough to meet the demands of the revolution. Sit-ins and protest actions should end and the new government given a chance to move on with the transition.  (21.04 %)
150 votes
Important concessions have been made, but they are insufficient. Sit-ins and protest action should go on until all basic demands are met, and to ensure promises are fulfilled.   (27.63 %)
197 votes
It is all window-dressing; the Egyptian revolution has been betrayed, and protest action should continue until the military council is removed from power.   (44.32 %)
316 votes
I have no position on the matter.   (7.01 %)

An open-ended sit-in in Cairo’s Tahrir Square and other Egyptian cities began on Friday July 8. The protesters say the sit-in will go on until a number of basic demands of the revolution are met. Where do you stand?
I fully support the continuation of the sit-in until the revolutionary demands are met.  (64.95 %)
680 votes
Enough is enough! These sit-ins are wreaking havoc with the country’s stability and economy. They should be disbanded immediately.  (11.17 %)
117 votes
I support the demands but disagree with the sit-ins, which undermine the return to normalcy and economic revival.  (19.68 %)

A nation-wide protest has been called for 8 July to press for the speedy prosecution of Mubarak and his cronies, as well as of all police officers involved in the torture and killing of citizens. Where do you stand?
Enough protests! We want stability and security. Prosecuting police officers would bring even more harm to the precarious security situation.  (22.25 %)
162 votes
I fully support the protest call and will take part in the demonstrations.   (35.99 %)
262 votes
I fully support the protest call, but will not join the demonstrations.  (22.39 %)

Egypt’s political landscape is dominated these days by the Constitution or elections first debate. Where do you stand?
Parliamentary elections should be held first, and on schedule.  (14.25 %)
64 votes
The Constitution should be drawn by a constituent assembly reflecting the aspirations of all sections of the nation. I choose Constitution First.  (44.54 %)
200 votes

The Muslim Brotherhood leadership boycotted and condemned last Friday’s protests demanding the fulfillment of the Revolution’s objectives. What is your view?
The Muslim Brotherhood is showing political wisdom, acting for stability and the restoration of order   (15.23 %)
154 votes
The Muslim Brotherhood has betrayed the revolution and the cause of democracy, in the hope of winning an exclusive hold on power  (49.36 %)
499 votes
