14 November 2011 -- Giza, Egypt -- Two members from the US National Democratic Institute observe posted candidate lists as voters across the Giza and other governorates around Egypt go to the polls in Parliamentary elections in the first vote after the downfall of the Mubarak regime. The Islamist parties showed surprising strength in the first stage of the 2-month 3 tiered voting system in Egypt. The NDI and the IRI were two of 10 NGO organizations raided last month by Egyptian security forces as part of an investigation into whether the groups were operating legally in Egypt. Egypt has banned a number of Americans working for these international rights organizations from leaving Egypt.
