Drop Morsy from the Person of the Year List

Dictators can't be chosen for this honor

It came to my attention that President Morsy of Egypt is among the nominees for TIME’s Person of the Year 2012. I really wonder how can a respected magazine like TIME can even think to nominate a person who has adopted dictatorship and taken all executive, judicial and juridical powers in his hands against the will of the majority of the Egyptian people. I am kindly urging you and the panel in charge to omit his name immediately. Dictators can’t be chosen for this honor.
