House elections continue to lead the conversation on Egypt’s talk shows

The House of Representatives elections were still leading the conversation on the airwaves last night as the first round of voting wrapped in 14 governorates yesterday and the process of counting ballots began. Ala Mas’ouleety’s Ahmed Moussa, for one, dedicated a full three hours to the second day of voting and the ballot counting process (watch, runtime: 3:00:29), while Masaa DMC’s Eman El Hosary also took note (watch, runtime: 8:11).

Back on the political side of the conversation, some 140 complaints over alleged bribing of voters with money and food were filed throughout the two-day vote, Egyptian Human Rights Organization head Hafez Abu Saada told Kelma Akhira’s Lamees El Hadidi (watch, runtime: 10:22). Lamees also dove deeper into details of the election’s first phase in a lengthier segment (watch, runtime: 40:18). Meanwhile, Egyptian Center for Strategic Studies analyst Sobhi Essila explained to Al Hayah Al Youm’s Mohamed Sherdy how the redrawing of some electoral districts has led to more closely contested votes and a more active voter base (watch, runtime: 4:35).

The corporate drama at CIB also made headlines last night; we have details in this morning’s Speed Round, below.
