voted for a second day on Tuesday in an election that Islamists hope
will bring them closer to power even though the army generals who took
over from Hosni Mubarak have yet to step aside.The parliamentary
poll, the first since a popular uprising toppled Mubarak in February,
has confounded fears of violence after a week of riots against army rule
in which 42 people were killed.
Monitors said turnout was high on the first day,
although no official figure has yet been released. They reported
logistical hiccups and campaign violations but no serious violence.
