Fair Elections Begin With a Fair Campaign

Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Article 21.(1) Everyone has the right to take part in the government of his country, directly or through freely chosen representatives.
(2) Everyone has the right of equal access to public service in his country.
(3) The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government; this will shall be expressed in periodic and genuine elections which shall be by universal and equal suffrage and shall be held by secret vote or by equivalent free voting procedures.

Here is my story: Egyptian elections coverage for elections is slammed by Egyptian NGOs. And, I do not want to go on writing to apply democracy you must have freedom of.... and access to ..... because it is as clear as day.

Mahatma Gandhi said ony day "You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty." And I believe him.

Great blog! Good luck with what you're doing.

Freedom and democracy are the fundamental right of every human being. People all over the world are waking up to that fact, and demanding what's theirs.
