Rigged elections at Haiti and Egypt

Al Jazeera: Haiti, Egypt.

Not really feeling like commenting after reading so many Wikileaks cables (I'll post something on this in the near future) but also needed to mention them. Just to mention that, even before fraud and violence made most candidates to denounce the polls, the main real party Fanmi Lavalas was not allowed to run again, so it was expected most people would not vote in any case in the pseudo-democratic protectorate. The Egyptian case is more domestic instead but not at all disconnected from the global networks of power and conflict.
