Who celebrates victory in the presidential elections in Egypt

18
Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi re-elected for a new term. After summing up the election results, it turned out that 97% of Egyptians who came to the polling stations voted for the current head of state. At the same time in the central election commission of the country reported a relatively low turnout. It was a little over 41%.


According to Egyptian law, voting took place over a period of three days. At the same time, the Western press, including Reuters, has already declared the presidential elections in Egypt undemocratic. In addition to the al-Sisi itself, Musa Mustafa Musa, who is considered a loyal politician to al-Sisi, participated in the elections.

Reuters comes out with material stating that opposition leaders "were not allowed to vote." It was also added that under al-Sisi, "dissent was actively suppressed."

It is noteworthy that when chaos reigned in Egypt (after the “Arab spring”), the Western press literally admired the Egyptian “democracy”. It was during that “flourishing of democracy” on the Sinai Peninsula that the cells of the so-called “Islamic State” (prohibited in the Russian Federation) began to form, which are still a factor of instability on Egyptian soil. The work on establishing order in the country, conducted by the current president, does not seem to be liked by Western “friends” of Cairo.

      "The Western press has already declared the presidential election in Egypt undemocratic." In Egypt, someone is interested in the opinion of the Western press? Something is not heard that crowds of people are rebelling and building barricades.

        It is not so much the West that is dangerous for Egypt, but Turkey, which actively supported the "Muslim brothers" and was very disappointed with the coming to power of ACC. So here we have with Turkey our graters on the impact on Egypt, not to mention the mattresses. ACC has big trump cards in his hands today in the sense that he can hang out in front of the “job seekers” to whom he will bow his head more. There will be a big bargain with Egypt, the outcome of which depends on who offers what. Given our success in Syria and the decline in US authority in B. Vostok, the balance is likely to be tipped towards Russia.

        Unlike Obama, the Trump administration is well aware that democracy is not a universal patent of happiness for all nations. The people need to reach a certain level of development so that democracy approaches them. Otherwise, we get a democratically elected Perdogan or Islamist Mursi in the same Egypt. Therefore, at this stage of development, democracy is strictly contraindicated to the peoples of the Arab countries, Russia, and Central Asia.

            Regarding the rear-wheel drive, the truth is somewhere in between the aggressive advertising of this in the West and the aggressive persecution of homosexuals in Russia.

        So Egypt has the United States, and now has a special relationship. It is the Europeans who are showing off at the expense of undemocracy. But who is listening to them?

    There are two training manuals for similar articles to the west: 1) “Elections are profitable for us” 2) “Elections are not profitable for us” Depending on the country, in the attached “blanks” you just need to fill in the empty columns with the names of countries and the names of politicians, otherwise how else to explain the obvious the similarity of these materials with materials during our elections ... what request
