While the election process should be transparent and monitored by international observers and the media, the campaigns of Sisi and other contenders should also meet certain requirements: The candidates should put forward detailed programs that explain how they will address the deteriorating socio-economic situation and confront the threat of terror.One person is destined to win, but unless millions of people can vote freely, respect the result and then witness authentic reform and resurgence, it will be a hollow election.
