A bad sign

Egypt's interim regime is refusing to allow international monitors to observe their elections. International monitors are a vital means of ensuring that an election is free and fair. The only reason you ban them is because you intend to run an election which does not meet those standards, to give a veneer of democratic legitimacy to a government established by fraud.

I don't think that this is what the people in Tahrir Square fought for.
