While Egyptian judges and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) had interacted on several occasions in the past, the events of 2005 occasioned new manifestations and forms of support between them. Judges and NGOs supported one another in attempting to ensure the transparency of the ballot. Judges fought for the right of NGOs to enter polling stations while civil society organizations maintained their total support for judges, siding with them repeatedly through press releases, public statements, and conferences. Beyond such reciprocal support, NGOs and judges both supervised and observed the referendum and elections, and both reported the abuses and fraud that marred the elections. Their recommendations centered on the same issues, and they went beyond requests for changes to electoral procedures to demands for reforms in the legal and political environment itself.
