Former President Carter praises Egypt elections – Boston.com
”Carter said his organization was “very pleased” with the conduct of the elections so far.
“There have been some problems in general, but the will of the people has been expressed accurately,” Carter told reporters at polling station in a girls school in the Cairo neighborhood of Rod al-Farag.
Some voters in a run-off election for the third round to elect the lower house of parliament stopped to snap photos of the former president with their mobile phones.
Islamist parties have taken a solid majority in the parliament. The political party of the Muslim Brotherhood has won between 40 and 50 percent of the vote, and a coalition of ultraconservative Salafi Muslim parties received another 20 percent.
Responding to a reporter’s question, Carter dismissed the idea that the U.S. should be concerned about the Islamist victory.
“I don’t have any problem with that, and the U.S. government doesn’t have any problem with that either,” he said. “We want the will of the Egyptian people to be expressed”
RRD:Replace Islamist,with Misogynistic,Anti-Semitic,Anti-Freedom,Anti-Christian & ask yourself what Carter’s reaction would be if a Fascist party came to power in Europe.Then again he would probably be happy if the volk of Germany choose another Hitler.
