Millions Of Voters Attempt To Elect Mo Salah As President Of Egypt by Zanas: 4:31pm On Mar 31, 2018
Liverpool star Mohammed Salah was reportedly the reason for a number of spoiled ballots in the recently concluded presidential elections in Egypt with many of the country's football fans desperately trying to elect him president though he wasn't a candidate in the elections

Salah ended up finishing second at polls even beating one of the candidates but all votes accruing to him were declared invalid

Mohamed Salah's popularity in Egypt continues to soar, The Liverpool forward has been in electrifying form for
Liverpool in 2017-18, scoring 36 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions. Salah has also racked up 33 goals in 55 caps for Egypt, and scored the last-minute penalty that secured Egypt's qualification for the 2018 World Cup, in a 2-1 win over congo

It is perhaps unsurprising, then, that over a million voters crossed out the two names on the ballot - Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi, the winner, and Moussa Mustafa Moussa - in order to write Salah's name

Mr Al-Sisi won 92 per cent of the vote according to The Economist but more than one million people spoiled their ballots, with many exercising their democratic right to protest by scribbling Salah's name in the box instead.

This haters above me, take a chill pill..


Mo is very gifted and very humble. He truly makes me proud, although I am not Egyptian, I am more than happy to claim the African brother.. but sha I dey fear the guy for World Cup, if by chance Nigeria qualify I definitely don’t want to them to meet Egypt.

Even with no titles, i hope he wins world best for next year, he deserves it.

Isn't it sad that that in Africa, we have entertainers with credibility than career political leaders.

Criticize the voters but one thing stands:

It's still a decent mode of protest against a repressive government masquerading itself as democratic.

The Arabs are a little conscious of their political rights

The Nigerian voter will never challenge their oppressors.

With as little as bread and 500 naira, the Nigerian voter will sell his destiny and future to political criminals

Sisi is not very popular among large segments of the population, plus many opposition candidates were barred from running in the election.

This kind of protest is very popular in many countries, including the USA. If you feel dissatisfied with one candidate, write in the name of a 'preferred' candidate as a form of protest.

Here is an example of people voting for Mickey Mouse and Jesus in a recent senate election in the USA.

Its just a statement. . .the same way over 11,000 voters in one state (I think it was Illinois/Ohio) voted for Harambe (a dead Gorilla) to as a way of saying that Both Trump and Clinton weren't qualified candidates. Here in Nigeria we don't have the guts to choose anyone but APC and PDP.
