CAIRO: The State Lawsuits Advisers Club (SLAC) issued a number of recommendations on March 8 to the Supreme Presidential Elections Committee regarding the upcoming  presidential elections

The SLAC recommended that the names of judges supervising  elections  be announced before presidential elections,  and for judges to be transported to polling stations.

The club also recommended that no more than 1,000 voters be allocated to each sub-polling committee, and called on the Supreme Electoral Committee to ban the use of loudspeakers to campaign for candidates in front of polling stations.

It also recommended that counting of votes and actual voting take place on separate days.

It advised that  a picture and a symbol for the presidential candidates be included  in voting cards to facilitate voting of illiterates.

The club  requested more polling stations for Egyptians voting outside of their home governorates, and called for the creation of an electronically linked voting database.
