Egypt Election 2012 with Google Doodle

Cairo: Search engine giant Google has dedicated a Doodle for Egyptians to mark Egypt Presidential Election 2102 (انتخابات الرئاسة المصرية 2012), almost 15 months after Hosni Mubarak ouster in the Arab Spring.Egypt Google

The Doodle, visible on Google’s Egyptian search home page, features Google’s letters depicting the entire election process, from standing in lines and casting the vote in ballot boxes.

Fifty million Egyptians can vote in their first free presidential election to choose between the mixed categories of candidates—Islamists, secularists, revolutionaries and the ones supporting status quo.

A transparent process during the polls is guaranteed by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (Scaf), which assumed presidential powers in February 2011.

Google has been praised by Egyptians and non-Egyptians alike for the Doodle and its efforts to make people aware of the election process and encourage them to vote for a new government.
