    The strong turnout followed days of public hand-wringing about the apparent emptiness of the polling stations. The absence of voters was so conspicuous on the first two scheduled days of balloting that election officials took the extraordinary step of adding a third day at the last minute, to strengthen the total turnout.

    Both teams of foreign observers faulted the last-minute addition of a third day as a needless irregularity that raised doubts about the credibility of the process and the independence of the election authorities.

    Mr. Bjornlund of Democracy International said his observers had seen no impediments to voting on the first two days that might have justified a third day, and the European Union delegation said the third day “caused unnecessary uncertainty in the electoral process.”

    It is the Egyptian Army that really runs things there. Oh sure they have figureheads like Mubarak but they are the leadership. Egypt has not changed for 50 years and yet they were our 2nd highest receiver of our largess. Israel is the highest and Columbia is 3rd.
