Printing house workers protest, accused of forging voting ballots
Governmental print house workers protested Thursday in Imbaba, blocking traffic, in protest at being accusing of forging election voting ballots. The road was cut on both sides of Nile Corniche, disrupting traffic. Some 30 print house workers were questioned by the prosecution on the allegations.
One of the workers told Ahram news portal: "We have been printing voting ballots for 40 years now and we have never been the target of such accusations." He questioned how would there be forgery if more than three security men guard the printing pallet, and that after printing the pallet is wrapped.
The worker also asked why only he and his colleagues were being them be accused while police printing houses printed voting ballots as well. "We have printed only 25 million voting ballots, whereas the police printed the second half."
Some 400 appeals were filed between the presidential candidates on the voting ballots, with the governmental print house specifically accused of forging from 800 to 1000 voting ballots for Mursi's benefit.
The second round run-off between Mohamed Mursi and Ahmed Shafiq took place 16-17 June. The result will be officially announced 23 or 24 June.

The convenient marriage between Iran and the Arab left would have been unthinkable only a few years ago, given the traditional ideological paradoxes between patriarchal Persian Shiism, on the one hand, and leftist orthodoxy on the other.Indeed, a casual viewer of Hizbullah's Al-Manar television, or the Iranian-funded Al-Mayadin TV, these days would probably think that the two Shia propaganda
