Egyptian Elections Upcoming

The Egyptian elections are set to start at the end of the month.  Their electoral commission has until tomorrow to finish vetting all the candidate applications.  There were a lot this year:  5,720.  There were calls for a boycott by Mohamed ElBaradei, but he's mostly been ignored this year.  There have been rumors about Hosni Mubarak's son being his successor, but, at least for the moment, Gamal Mubarak is saying no.  He is part of his father's National Democratic Party, which met a few days ago to discuss the elections.
