What basically we see a lot of elections in Egypt I mean -- four election -- and a referendum one would tend to think what that's democracy movement forward.
But we saw in Germany and -- in the thirties that the election alone without acting as a democratic president.
I'm I'm going to be sufficient what's happening now in Egypt is despite the thought of a dictator.
