Egypt to Elect President in May

 It's official: Egypt will hold Presidential elections in May, a month ahead of the June deadline previously set. The exact date will be set by the elections committee. (It may be worth noting that the SCAF's Advisory Committee recommended May 16.) Candidacy registration will open March 10 for three weeks, followed by 45 days of campaigning, which would again point to a mid-May date.

As the details flesh out, I'll comment at much greater length.
