They are Rumyana Tconeva and Manol Glishev. They got to know each other and started dating during the protests. We met as they were going together to the square. Rumyana is a second-year university student in History and she stands against the current government and their “insolent decisions, to put it mildly”. After this Manol heatedly adds, “In my opinion, this government is good for nothing!” He works in an IT firm and in his words his salary directly suffers ever since this government came to power. “Besides, personally, I don’t want to pay for the Belene Nuclear Power Plant. I don’t even need the Belene Nuclear Power Plant and not only that but there is no need for a loan from Russia, and I don’t need this incompetent economist to pose as a prime minister and promise to give money to the poor with borrowed money”, said Manol. “I was and I might soon be poor again if this continues. It’s a bad deal to give money borrowed money to the poor.” Afterwards, Manol shared with me that Rumiana is always very nervous in front of cameras but is otherwise very active in the protests. “It’s the opposite with some people. They talk a lot in front of the camera and act little” he added.

The Egyptian parliamentary elections kicked off Sunday morning as voters went to polls nationwide to select a new People's Assembly. The ruling National Democratic Party is expected to sweep the results with many of the opposition parties reporting abuse and fraud throughout the country. Polling stations in Shubra Al-Kheima and Garden City were mostly peaceful, with police and security forces in and around the polling centers.
Supporters of the National Democratic Party candidates in Garden City were riled into chanting when the opposition candidate Gamila Ismael arrived to check on the polling station procedures. She reported that her number was misprinted on the ballots and that her supporters were told to sign beside their vote instead of marking the box, which would invalidate their vote.
