Behind the race for the White House , the battle for control of the Senate is the other major issue in the US elections on November 3. Inconceivable a few months ago, the Republican majority is now seriously threatened. As the United States sank into the health and economic crisis, the inconceivable gradually became conceivable, then probable.

Parliamentary elections are scheduled to be held in Egypt on 24-25 October and on 7-8 November 2020 to elect the House of Representatives.

Egyptian parliamentary elections to the House of Representatives were held in two phases, from 17 October to 2 December 2015. The elected parliament will be entrusted with the task of reviewing the

In Egypt the first round of parliamentary elections started on Saturday. Around 63 million people were called to cast their votes. A clear victory for the supporters of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi was expected in advance.

Around 4,000 candidates, most of whom are close to the al-Sisi camp, apply for 284 of the 596 seats in the Cairo lower house. Eight party lists are running for 284 additional seats. The 33 remaining parliamentary seats are occupied directly by al-Sisi.

Senate elections were held in Egypt on 11 and 12 August 2020, with the diaspora voting on 9 and 10 August. Run-offs took place on 8-9 September (6-7 for the diaspora)

The first round of voting will take place this weekend in 14 provinces of the country. The 13 other administrative districts, including the capital city of Cairo, will vote on November 7th and 8th. The result is expected on December 14th.

Observers rate voter turnout as an important yardstick for the support of the government in the population. Most parties have little support from the Egyptian public. Many representatives of the fragmented opposition are imprisoned, and dozens of journalists are also in prison. Demonstrations have been practically banned since 2013. Since 2017, the government has repeatedly renewed the state of emergency.

Al-Sisi supporters are represented almost exclusively in the current parliament. Only Alliance 25/30 has a small opposition faction.

The election is the second ballot in Egypt since the beginning of the corona pandemic. In August, the Egyptians were called to vote on 200 of the 300 seats in the upper house; the turnout at that time was only 14 percent.
