The Parliamentary Elections Observatory of the Maat Foundation for Peace, Development and Human Rights continued to monitor the course of the polling process in the first round in the second phase, which started this morning, and here is the third statement issued by the observatory during the day, which covers the period of time extending from the reopening of the committees door after the rest period (3.30 pm) Until half past five in the evening.
During this period, no reports of violations or negative interference were received from the state apparatus and the insurance forces present in front of the committees, nor were there reports of cases of violence that would affect the electoral process, while we received a single statement indicating the emergence of a group known to belong to a group. The Muslim Brotherhood destroyed the car of a citizen, bearing the numbers “96111,” while he was passing near one of the committees at the Mina Al Qamh Center in the Sharkia Governorate, due to the placement of posters for one of the candidates.
On the other hand, field observers of the Maat Foundation monitored a number of violations committed by the candidates and their supporters in a number of electoral districts, the most prominent of which was breaching the electoral silence, and among the most important incidents that have been monitored are the following: -
1- Al-Gharbia Governorate / Tanta City District / Seger District / Car driving around the district with posters of candidate Yasser al-Jundi and a loudspeaker urging voters to elect the candidate.
2- Gharbia Governorate / Tanta City District / Nasser Agricultural Secondary School: Supporters of candidate Muhammad Shehata directed the voters and distributed propaganda cards containing the candidate's name, number and electoral symbol.

It has also been observed that some candidates are distributing electoral bribes to some voters, in the governorate of Gharbia, Zefta district, Kafr al-Sindia: The security forces arrested three members of the candidate’s campaign, Rabie Hamed, who were distributing 100 pounds in sums of money and 100 EGP charging cards to the voters.
In Cairo in the Dar al-Salam district, we observed that some people were distributing a financial electoral bribe to voters in Hadayek al-Maadi area of Sayed Abdel-Fadil Street. These people also transport voters to the polling stations by means of mass transit vehicles and according to some testimonies that these people are affiliated with the campaign of candidate Taysir Matar (there are no signs) It indicates that, and then the matter requires investigation by the competent authorities.
