Two important polls going on today:
The people are voting again after the last elections 6 weeks ago proved inconclusive.
The results could decide whether greece stays in the Euro, the EU both, either or none.
Very important european election where there are no guarantees and this could be the first nation to leave the eurozone and that is an unknown as the euro was not built for anyone to leave it ever. Questions exist if it could survive a state leaving and also how bad or good this would be for Greece.
It's the run off presidential elections the week after the old remnants have been making themselves felt.
On one side is the last prime minister from the Mubarak era and on the other side is their dreaded nemesis, a candidate from the Muslim Brotherhood.
The added spice is that in the past week judges appointed by Muabarak have manage to pass judgement closing the parliament which also had a large Muslim Brotherhood presence and also enacted other laws.
Some thing this is all to crown the old guard, remnants of the old regime. but that is something that we will see only shortly. We will see if the revolution is undone or if it is manipulated - its is standard that everyone will try to make the revolution be more favourable for them, but it is not a guarantee who will come out on top.
Once again there is uncertaintly who will have the upper hand here, but initial predictions are that the old regime's man may have won the elections.
There will be much soul searching here for the ordinary people to see what went wrong and even more from the Muslim Brotherhood. Not only did they miss the revolution when they told their supporters not to take part, but when handed victory ona golden plate, they managed to drop it.
On top of that there is the Syrian situation where there is much carnage going on with the regime massacring its own civillians and militias from the governments side and from the opposition offfering help in doing so.
