Brownie Points

“Mubarak can now cherish his historical role as the first democratically elected President in Egypt.” – Abdul Rahman Al-Rashed, general manager of Al -Arabiya TV.

“The electoral process proceeded normally and no intervention by the security in the voting process in a way that undermined the freedom of voters or secrecy of the voting was observed.” - Boutrous Ghaly, former UN Secretary General. h/t: SM

According to monitors and the opposition, the voting was marred by widespread abuses and irregularities, mainly by Mubarak's National Democratic Party (NDP) and by the organizers. However, the abuses would not have affected the overall result, said several monitoring groups, including the independent Egyptian Organization for Human Rights. - CNN/Reuters.

In other words: we are not going to comment on the centralized tabulating of votes that neither we nor anyone else have any access to.
