The April 6 Youth Movement said Wednesday that the military police has detained three of its members in Port Said after they videotaped electoral violations in polling stations in the governorate.
Movement spokesperson Mahmoud Afify told Al-Masry Al-Youm that the arrested members are Islam Hashem, Mohamed Hassan and Mohamed Abul Fadl.
Military police allegedly arrested Abul Fadl outside the polling station at Yarmouk School, while Mohsen was reportedly arrested after he videotaped army forces attacking a girl outside the same polling station.
Hashem was detained after he allegedly witnessed campaigning for the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate Mohamed Morsy in a polling station in Port Fouad.
Afify said that during the interrogations, an army officer asked Hashem to name the central chamber of the movement that follows the electoral process.
In other news, the Egyptian Association for Supporting Democratic Development has claimed that the failure of the Presidential Elections Commission to control campaigning has led to clashes between their supporters, which foreshadows more violence in the coming hours, given the many complaints it received.
Association observers monitored several altercations between supporters in Cairo, North Sinai and Alexandria.
