Egypt poll unlikely to bring change

Egyptians are not convinced that their vote will help bring new faces to Egypt's political forefront.

    As voters in Egypt head to the polls on Sunday for parliamentary elections, the ruling National Democratic Party is widely expected to win the most seats.

    The opposition has accused the government of intimidating and harrassing candidates, especially those affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood.

    And among the public, there's wide disillusion that anything will be changed by participating in the vote.
