Denied the right to participate as a party, the Brotherhood backed independent candidates who swept to victory in 60 percent of the races they contested. They would have done better, were it not for the thuggery of NDP mobs and Mubarak's security police, which the Washington Post described in an editorial, "Egypt's Ugly Election":
The last days of Egypt's month-long parliamentary election were shameful. Government security forces and gangs of thugs from the (NDP) blockaded access to dozens of polling sites where opposition candidates were strong. In several cases they opened fire on citizens who tried to vote; 10 people were reported killed. Inside the election stations, government supporters blatantly stuffed ballot boxes in full view of judicial monitors.

Akef has jus recanted today; anyway I don't believe that a man whose slogan is 'Islam is the solution' can really do miracles for the economy of this country. In Iran it's not just the president but a major part of the government, and at least it concern a country that is much less dependant (economically).
