Editor

Jumada' al-Akhirah 01, 14352014-07-01

Parliamentary elections were held in Libya on June 25 but few people bothered to cast ballot. They had more weighty things on their mind: the growing security problem, lack of food and fuel and total chaos that has gripped the country since the US-Nato alliance “liberated” it from the clutches of Colonel Qaddafi.

More death sentences, and turmoil in Bangladesh

Editor

Rabi' al-Thani 01, 14352014-02-01

The regime of Hasina Wajed who just “won” a fraudulent election in Bangladesh, appears determined to kill all its opponents either through flawed judicial processes or by making scandalous allegations against opponents. The result is turmoil that may perhaps lead to civil war.

When voting ended on the night of June 12, most people in Turkey did not have to wait for official results of the general elections. Turkish and foreign experts had already anticipated that Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) would win a third consecutive victory.

Analysing Iran’s Elections

Zafar Bangash

Jumada' al-Akhirah 08, 14302009-06-01

Iran’s June 12 presidential elections in which the incumbent, President Mah-moud Ahmedinejad, retained his post by a wide margin over his nearest rival Mir Hussain Mousavi has provided the Muslim-hating West another opportunity to spout its anti-Islamic venom. Through its media mouthpieces, they had already declared Mousavi the winner even before the people of Iran had had an opportunity to cast their vote. When the result turned out against their wishes, it was immediately denounced as “rigged”. It seems even Mousavi had fallen for this propaganda because he, too, prior to polls closing, told a Tehran press conference that he had “won”.

It was more like a numbers contest than a vote to choose a common political future for an anguished nation. Members of Iraq's diverse communities turned out in large numbers on December 15 to elect their representatives for a four-year parliament. But instead of voting for political platforms that would foster unity and reconciliation, most Iraqis voted for lists representing their own communities.

Ahmad Musa

Dhu al-Hijjah 01, 14262006-01-01

As Crescent International goes to press, it remains uncertain whether the elections for the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) that are due to take place on January 25 will actually go ahead. Israel made a clear attempt to sabotage them on December 21, when it announced that Palestinians in Jerusalem would not be permitted to vote if Hamas were allowed to take part in the polls.
