WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush urged Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Wednesday to show the world his country can set an example for others by holding free and fair presidential elections.

"I urged him once again to have as free and fair elections as possible because it will be a great legacy for his country," Bush told reporters during a session with visiting South African President Thabo Mbeki.

Bush and Mubarak spoke by telephone for about 10 minutes and among the topics they covered was the start of the presidential election campaign in Egypt, and last week's referendum there and incidents of violence.

Bush said Mubarak assured him that he wants to have free and fair elections. "I will to the best of my ability continue to try to convince him that it's not only in Egypt's interest, but the world's interests, to see Egypt have free and fair elections," Bush said.

Activists urging a boycott of the May 25 referendum on a new presidential election system in Egypt were beaten, kicked and punched by plainclothes supporters of Mubarak, according to witnesses.

Mubarak could learn a few things about elections from Bush for sure...

It's quite a skill staying in power when you've never actually been elected...

Bush urging Free and Fair elections is like the Pope urging Catholics to become Jewish. It never ceases to amaze me, the balls on that man.

Well that was blatantly obvious... I believe the theme of this thread is hypocrisy, though.

Fair... as in... fairground

Where there is music and booze, and people get a ride on a wooden elephant.
And lose their bucks.

How droll...

Here we are conversing like mature adults and the best you can muster is "you're all mad because Bush won; get over it?"

n8dross,
We respect your desire to take it up the ass from your un-elected officials, but we're not all "into it".
