EU says Egypt vote lawful but lacked 'stakeholders'

David Mario (centre), chief observer for the EU mission in Egypt looks on as Robert Goebbels (left), head of the European Parliament delegation, speaks in a press conference in Cairo on May 29, 2014A European Union team that observed Egypt’s presidential election said Thursday the vote was conducted “in line with the law,” although it regretted the lack of participation of some “stakeholders”. Preliminary results from the three-day election that ended on Wednesday gave 96 percent of votes to Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the ex-army chief who toppled Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last year. Sisi’s opponents say that since he deposed Morsi, Egypt has returned to autocratic rule, with more than 1,400 killed in street clashes and at least 15,000 jailed in a crackdown on the Islamist’s supporters. Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood, blacklisted by the military-installed authorities as a “terrorist” organisation, had called for a boycott of the election.
