Polls have opened for a second day of voting in Egypt’s landmark parliamentary elections, the first since Hosni Mubarak’s ouster.

The turnout on the first day was massive, despite security concerns and turmoil over a deadly spate of violence in the week before the balloting. It reflects the nation’s determination to break away from the past after 10 months of frustration over how the military rulers who took over from Mubarak are handling the transition.

Tuesday’s balloting is the second day in a voting process staggered over the next six weeks across 27 provinces.
