Egypt’s Supreme Presidential Electoral Commission (SPEC) made the decision on April 14 to ban the Muslim Brotherhood candidate, Khairat El-Shater, along with nine other candidates, from running for the nation’s top post. El-Shater, a man I used to respect for his intelligence and moderate views, proceeded to slam the SPEC and its head, Farouk Sultan, accusing them of colluding with the SCAF to recreate the old regime. El-Shater even claimed to have documents to prove it. So now the Brotherhood is spying on the SCAF? I wonder how they pulled that off?
If only the SCAF and Sultan would sue El-Shater for libel, perhaps it would put an end to the frivolous manner in which dissatisfied individuals make serious charges.
