Since it's all confusing to me but I am curious: @thepharoah was he seen as a bad guy? Pretty sure here he was, but no idea how that was in Egypt. 

 

he stayed only for a year , so i can't say he's good or bad , the only truth is he was the 1st demo-crated elected president in history of Modern Egypt . anyway many people on the Social media were sad for the news and they showed their sympathy with him , others don't really care and there's other group that are happy for the news , but i guess they're not many in Egypt , at least that's what i can guess from Social media

people here follow the politics in Egypt very closely. mostly for cultural similarity. but for most people that's confusing. why we had a revolution in first place when eventually Egypt ended up with someone similar to Mubarak on office. :wacko:

 

btw Mubarak or Mursi this is really not good to put former presidents in a "cage" during the trials. anybody can have a heart attack in that situation.

Yeah I'm always a bit shocked when seeing anyone (no matter their crime) in a cage in court on the news. Makes the whole thing look like it's some sort of animal in a show trial instead of something at least a little serious..

yes , we have been a bad example for other middle eastern countries that want to make revolutions or to continue their ones :d Mubarak at least got his right to stay most of the time in a military hospital and get the best possible cure during his imprisonment , but Morsi OFC didn't have the same rights as he's considered as a terrorist

So the first Democratic Party Debate for candidates in the 2020 presidential election is coming up next week. I’m not a registered Democrat, but it is the party I’m most likely to support (especially in this election). I’m technically registered as DSA (Democratic Socialists of America) and their preferred candidate(s) will be Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. I like both of them, but I’m not sure they will be Trump in the election. Plus, I don’t necessarily agree with every they’ve said. Though I would be willing to support them should they win the primaries (party elections). Joe Biden has crawled out of his mansion to run in this election. His treatment of women is worrying to me. Plus, he’s more of a centrist and that hasn’t worked well for us lately. He’s also not fully onboard the pro-choice train. The candidate I originally supported was Kamala Harris (Go California!) and I agree with most, of not all, of her policies, but she’s been struggling in the polls lately. She can also struggle to show her human side because of her focus on law (that’s just how lawyers are...but you to be personable to win the US Presidential Election). If she wins the nomination I will support her (as I have in other elections). The candidate I most likely, and that is my favorite going into the first debate is Pete Buttigieg. He’s mayor is a mid-major town much like mine. He’s very personal and a proud out gay man. He is closer to the center than some, but he still supports the same basic policies I do. He’s also from the generation as me (or at least as close as it’s going to get). He also just gives me hope for the country. I really just like his energy and charisma. Those are the main contenders for the Democratic nomination, but others could upset. Andrew Yang has made a name for himself in the early campaign season, and could steadily gain percentage points as the campaign continues. He is far-left, so I would vote for him (though I don’t like all of his policies). Cory Booker will also carry the African-American vote if he’s able to get momentum. I’m personally not a huge fan of his over the top theatrics, but he’s not all bad. I would vote for him over Trump. Amy Klobuchar also has a few percentage points in the race. I like what she has to say, but her record for the treatment of her staff is not great. She would still be better than Trump. The last candidate with a small chance in my opinion is Beto O’Rouke. He made waves in the last election when he almost stole Ted Cruz’s debate postion. He to me, is too much of a centrist, but he is highly personable. 

This race should be interesting. I believe the party will nominate someone pretty far left (which is awesome). If the democratic candidate wins; our immigration rules will be softened and will accept many more immigrants, we will attempt to implement big climate change policies, LGBTQ rights will be prioritized, the economy will be an issue, and hopefully we see some nationalized health care. Their will be other issues fixed to, but those are the ones I most care about.

So the losing presidential candidate disputed the results, after an attempted riot was unsuccessful, the case was brought to the constitutional court.

 

It has been 4 days (not including Saturday and Sunday) full of questioning and bickering. Almost all TV here showed this, up to 12 hours a day. The decision (hopefully) will be announced on Friday.

 

And this is the highlight from the court:
