What Is So Special about Elections in Egypt (15 pics)

Posted in Random » Weird   29 Nov 2011   / 4175 views

You’ll be surprised to see the ballot papers and election posters in Egypt. They are way too different from the ones used around the world.

 

Because of so many illiterate voters in Egypt (over 50% of the population), local politicians have to pick some of the weirdest symbols to help people choose the right party. Political parties are likened to a toothbrush, bananas, cameras, tanks, umbrellas and other recognisable objects so that voters could select their parliament by marking their ballot papers correctly.

It's possible they do it this way because of illiteracy, so that voters can associate a candidate with an icon and then look for that icon when at the voting booth...
