Elections are scheduled for Monday in Cairo. All the schools in the metropolis are closed (even in Giza) because of the anticipated disruption.
This is a political flier for a man running for office in Giza. I know nothing about him so this is not an endorsement.
What I find interesting is the political groups. The bearded man in a galabiya belongs to the Fanoos Lantern group. This totally connotates Islam because the lanterns are hung here at Ramadan. This half page of paper is flimsy and the quality is not as important as austerity.
The next flier is really a study in contrast.
This hijabi is part of the Grapes Party. I'm really so sad that I didn't get a picture of the flier from the man who was part of the Banana Party. Bananas are funny! Who in the world was thinking that's a great idea for someone running for political office?
I love this last picture. This woman is serious and sincere and is facing you with all her humanity. She is not dolled up or made to look attractive. She is an Egyptian first and a woman second. Again, I don't know anything about her politics. I only know that she is a covered woman who is ready to serve her country.
May the elections run as smoothly as possible with the outcome being fair and just.
