"There is no gas or bread; therefore there is no parliament or Shura council," banners held by supervisors of the Bani Idris elections from the Qusiya District in Asyut say about the election process. At the heart of the protests is the escalating gas crisis in the village which has a voting bloc of approximately 4,600 voters.
