Summary
Article summary: 

Bishāy laments the significant nature of the intrusion of religion into the recent Egyptian parliamentary elections. This, according to the author, involved "slogans, mosques, churches, and extremist groups addressing people's sentiments."

The news media played a major role in promoting this religious element in the campaign by resorting to sensationalist headlines, says Bishāy. He provides examples, such as, "Brotherhood provocations threaten a disaster on election day" and "Church source: Pope to go to Sharm al-Shaykh Tomorrow and will not Vote in Runoff."

Summary
Article summary: 

The absence the wife of the priest of Dīr Mawwās and the consequent demonstration of hundreds of Copts, as well as the bishops’ failure to resolve the crisis in the pope’s absence made some suggest that the idea of establishing a committee formed of bishops and members of the Coptic Orthodox Community Council for administrating the church.

Coptic thinker Jamāl As'ad says that many Copts will oppose establishing such a committee adding that there are many committees already in the church but they have no effective roles.

Summary
Article summary: 

‘Imād talks about the Coptic presence in this past Sunday's parliamentary elections, saying that five candidates won their races outright and five others are up for the run-off ballot. He says that the number of Coptic voters this year has significantly increased due to the larger number of Coptic candidates and calls by leading Coptic intellects to come out of political isolation.

‘Imād says that a number of Muslim Brotherhood candidates attempted to use churches to promote their campaigns, but were kicked out. That wasn’t the case, however, in Shubrā as a large number of churches promoted candidate Yūsuf Butrus Ghālī. A priest reportedly went to the extent of saying that Pope Shenouda III has issued direct orders for Copts to vote for Ghālī. Candidate Rāmī Lakah was accused of buying votes for 200 EGP and a meal.

Copts also had a significant role in the upper-Egyptian governorates, ensuring that the Muslim Brotherhood lost in Minya and Asyut and forcing ‘Abd al-Rahīm al-Ghūl to the run-off ballot.

Muntasir al-Zayyāt says that he is not worried by al-Qā‘idah’s threats of attacks inside Egypt because he doesn’t believe the threats were made by al-Qā‘idah. He also trusts the Egyptian security forces to keep al-Qā‘idah from entering Egypt. He talks about the history of al-Qā‘idah’s formation in Iraq and says that there are many other things going on in Iraq that are far more important to al-Qā‘idah than the actions of the Egyptian Church.

Summary
Article summary: 

Habīb says that people have been asking about who runs the Church when the pope is away on medical and pastoral trips. It used to be Bishop Bīshūy, says Habīb, but after the recent controversy surrounding his comments about Islam it has been Father Sergius. Habīb claims the Pope has chosen Father Sergius for his ineligibility to become the next pope. Father Sergius said that the Pope runs the church when abroad through phone calls and that no decisions are taken without his permission. Sergius’ claims are backed by several bishops.
