The second round in Egypt's fraudulent presidential elections will be taking place on June 16th and 17th. In the election, Ahmad Shafiq, one of Mubarak's old ministers, will face Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Marxists can offer no support to either of these candidates, both of whom represent the forces of counter-revolution. However, the Revolutionary Socialists group (sister organisation to the UK Socialist Workers Party) in Egypt have decided to do just that and it is a grave mistake.
