Following his return from Cairo, The Jerusalem Post’s correspondent, Eliezer Sherman, shares his experiences of being on the ground during the first round of the presidential elections. According to Sherman, there was a feeling that democracy had prevailed, but coupled with that was the feeling that people in the Egyptian capital did not understand how to utilize their newfound freedom. The atmosphere was a mixture of tension on the one hand, and excitement on the other.
