The second day of parliamentary elections here passed without incident Tuesday, with millions of Egyptians taking part in their country's first clean voting in decades and Egypt's military rulers taking credit for the relative calm and massive turnout.
A coalition of opposition groups called for a million people to take to Cairo's streets Tuesday to demand the removal of President Hosni Mubarak, the clearest sign yet that a unified leadership was trying to emerge for Egypt's powerful but disparate protest movement.
"The armed forces pulled off this election like they pulled off the crossing in 1973," he said, the AP reported.
"When we plan, we execute and, at the end, we succeed," Maj. Gen. Ismail Etman, a member of the ruling military council, said in a television interview, the Associated Press reported.
