Egypt Fast Tracks Elections

Egypt's Supreme Military Council has set the referendum on constitutional amendments for March 19, with Parliamentary elections in June and Presidential elections six weeks later. It's definitely a fast track, but there will be many questions: will the State of Emergency be lifted before the vote?
Who can run?

Another good question recently addressed by The Arabist: "Whose candidate is Amr Moussa?"

More later.
