Egyptian Government Plans to Ease Ballot Access for Political Parties

Ballot Access News:

Egyptian voters are expected to vote in favor of a proposal next week to liberalize ballot access for presidential candidates. Another reform proposal is expected to be announced after the referendum. It would ease ballot access for all political parties, for all office. See this story. Apparently the proposal will permit any party on the ballot that requests to be on. An official commented that this would lead to a proliferation of parties, but that eventually people would only be interested in the larger parties. Thanks to Ken Krawchuk for this news.
