Top 3 Political Stories of the Day

Several hundreds of Egyptians protested in central Cairo on Monday against a court ruling that sent three leading secular pro-democracy campaigners to jail, witnesses said. Raising a banner reading "Freedom for all detainees", the protesters chanted against the military-backed government, calling army chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi "a dog". The government passed a law last month banning protests not authorized by police in an attempt to end demonstrations by Islamists demanding the reinstatement of elected President Mohamed Mursi, who was removed by the army in July. AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal is set to be Delhi's seventh chief minister after staking claim Monday to take power with Congress backing -- amid vocal doubts about the government's stability. After a fortnight of deadlock that followed a hung verdict, the 45-year-old announced after meeting Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung that he and his ministers would take oath at the Ramlila Maidan but didn't give a date. Without acknowledging the support of Congress' eight legislators, a visibly confident Kejriwal asserted that the AAP, which has 28 seats in the 70-member assembly, had the majority to rule Delhi. "We are in a majority and we will form the government," he said. "Let the opposition pass a no confidence motion." Anti-government protesters determined to unseat Thailand's prime minister surrounded a Bangkok sports stadium on Monday in an unsuccessful attempt to block political parties from registering for February elections. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, who is popular among the rural majority but disliked by the urban middle class and elite, called the Feb. 2 elections to defuse tension after several weeks of sometimes violent demonstrations in the Thai capital.
