Transparent Ballot Boxes, Literally

Egypt is experiencing with democracy, sort of. Someone high up said on television that the upcoming elections to the parliament would be transparent. A bit further down in the hierarchy, someone gave it a good think-through. Transparency, what can it mean? Eventually, the ministry of interior was charged with making a further announcement:

"It promised the parliamentary elections will be honest and supervised by an independent judiciary, adding that ballot boxes will be transparent for the first time."

No kidding:

Via Raed in the Middle who says: Making the ballot boxes out of glass makes democracy more transparent in the Middle East! h/t: ‘Aquoul

I haven’t seen it elsewhere myself but Egypt would be the place where it would happen first.
