Egypt's volatile vote
There are reports of long lines at some polling centres in Cairo today as Egyptians vote in what are seen as landmark elections. It is the first round of parliamentary elections since President Hosni Mubarak was ousted after the prolonged and enthusiastic protests of earlier this year. Back then, many Egyptians had high hopes. But the violence and chaos that have erupted in the past few weeks have left many worried about the country's future. Egypt's military took charge after Mubarak left, and many now fear it has no plans to relinquish control to a civilian government
The military's response to last week's protests have been violent, leaving more than 40 people dead. But of the Egyptians who rallied at Tahrir Square last week only a small group remain - still a few thousand but very diminished.
To get a better read on the situation and where Egypt goes from here, we were joined by three guests. Dina Zakaria is the co-founder of the Freedom and Justice Party, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. Sherif Gaber is a political activist who has been protesting in Tahrir Square. And Youssef Sidhom is the editor-in-chief of Egypt's only Christian newspaper. They were all in Cairo today.Related Links:
