Referendum days are upon us
Do not be alarmed by the queues or the camels
Relax; you are not experiencing a déjà vu. It’s just that time of the year again: the time of the referendum. This might just be the third referendum Egyptians have seen in three years, but not the umpteenth time they have stood patiently in line to vote on something or another. Most Egyptians have learned the location of their polling station by heart, formed friendships in the long queues and even had some reunion or other with long-lost relatives or friends.
So, yes, it’s a usual sight, even that camel walking by the polling station; just another day of citizenship and national duty. Nothing to see here.
