CAIRO, (AP) – Egypt says it is “dismayed” with the United States meddling in its internal affairs after Washington called for foreign monitors to observe upcoming parliamentary elections.

A statement released by the Foreign Affairs Ministry on Thursday accused the U.S. of acting like an “overseer” and not respecting Egyptian society.

Elections in Egypt are routinely marred by fraud but authorities have pledged that the Nov. 28 balloting will be fair.

Egypt has rejected calls for allowing international observers to monitor the vote saying it would be a violation of its sovereignty.
