Mohammed ElBaradei, it is your loss if you do not take part in the elections. You don't take part you will not have a chance to get elected or to have your voice heard. But make sure that you do not complain about anything and keep your opinion to yourself after the election results are final, if you choose not to run in the elections. By the way Mohammed ElBaradei, the days of Egypt of being America's puppet are gone and over with and your attempt to bring Egypt back to become once again America's slave are over and this is why you are calling the Egyptian elections a 'sham democracy'. The elections that resulted in election of Morsi were democratic and just because you did not win and your wish to keep Egypt as a satellite of America failed does not mean tat the elections are a sham.
