Egyptians are voting in the first step of a long parliamentary election which will happen in stages up until March 2012.
This follows a week of protests, including a return to Tahrir square. This round of protests in Egypt was met by a violent response from the military, resulting in more than 40 deaths and many serious injuries among the protestors.
RT correspondent, Anissa Naouai, says, "While many people are voting in this round of the polls, many Egyptians feel the political parties on the ballot paper don't represent the people or their revolution."
