Pre-election Egypt and Greece

Today and tomorrow Egypt holds its presidential elections, tomorrow the Greeks will begin their parliamentary elections. The conditions in the public facilities in the Nile Delta and Athens portrayed here are unlikely to change in either location. Political representatives are not for people.

This is a video of a friend of mine Aris from Athens about the condition of the health care system in a large public hospital in Athens:   

This is a video Jasmina Metwaly and I filmed in March during a sit-in of the water company in Mansoura in the Egyptian Delta.

These situations are not that different.
