Pop-up newsrooms spring to life in Cairo for #EgyPresElexPosted on May 22 2012 by Tom Trewinnard. Filed under: Checkdesk, Community, Election monitoring, Freedom of expression
The candidates have been named, symbols have been assigned (Will Moussa’s sun leave Shafiq on a ladder to nowhere?) and ballot boxes are being prepared across Egypt for the country’s first presidential election of the post-Mubarak era. The stage has been set for this historic poll, and we want you to help us cover the events as they’re happening on the ground.
