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.
