    Egyptians vote in 1st elections since uprising deposed Hosni Mubarak
    CAIRO  Voting began on Monday in Egypt's first parliamentary elections since longtime authoritarian leader Hosni Mubarak was ousted in a popular uprising nine months ago.

    The ballot is a milestone many Egyptians hope will usher in a democratic age after decades of dictatorship.

    In the nine months since a revolt ended the ex-president's 30-year rule, political change in Egypt has faltered, with the military apparently more focused on preserving its power and privilege than on fostering any democratic transformation.

    democracy is a slow and embattled process but well worth it

      It seems strange to us in the western world that most politicians have used symbols instead of their name due to the high levels of illiteracy in the country.

      Change is a very slow process indeed
