Egypt’s National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (NTRA) presented new draft amendments to the telecommunications law, according Maged Osman, minister of communications and information technology.
… The minister dismissed the possibility of utilizing electronic voting through the internet in the upcoming elections. “It has been proven worldwide that there is a high risk of security compromises using such method in elections”
“Also candidates and supervisory bodies will not be able to dispute election results in court since there will be no printed forms to be recounted,” the minister added.
Osman explained that the Egyptian government cannot take the risk of applying electronic voting as it wants to ensure the maximum efficiency of the model used in elections.
