Mubarak Dominates Fake Election Campaign

A surprisingly informed election round up by the World Socialist Web Site is also a good read despite its length. Money quote:
The “Potemkin village” nature of the campaign was exposed, quite literally, after Mubarak posed for the media drinking tea in what was presented as the home of two farmers in the Nile Delta. According to Reuters, when independent newspaper Al Masry Al Youm later returned, the hut had been removed. Another paper, Ad Dustour, further alleged that in recent months Mubarak has inaugurated a series of power plants, hospitals, and other infrastructure projects that have either been running for years or are far from being completed.
