On The Daily Circuit Monday, we'll look at two big elections internationally and the secret files of Egypt.


The struggling country held crucial elections Sunday, which may determine whether Greece will stay within the European Union. Abdur Chowdhury, economics professor and chair at Marquette University, will join The Daily Circuit Monday to discuss the election results.


President Obama heads to the G-20 Summit in Mexico Monday. The European economic crisis is likely to be at the center of discussion. New York Times economics reporter Annie Lowrey will join us to talk about the summit.


Egypt held presidential runoff elections Saturday and Sunday, despite the news Thursday that the parliament has been dissolved. We'll follow up on what took place over the weekend and what the elections mean for the fragile state of the country.

Bruce Jentleson, professor of public policy and political science at Duke University, will join The Daily Circuit to discuss the election results.


We'll air a documentary from BBC about secret files in Egypt from President Hosni Mubarak's time in office.

More from BBC:

In March of this year hundreds of activists stormed Egypt's state security buildings. They wanted to prevent the shredding of secret files gathered under the 30-year rule of President Hosni Mubarak. The files contained details of people who were deemed to be a threat to state security - many of whom, say the activists - were arrested and tortured. For Assignment, Helena Merriman goes on the trail of the secret files to find out the stories of those whose names were listed in them and to find out whether the files - now in the possession of the new state security police - will ever be made public.


Bruce Jentleson told us that what Egypt has now is worse than what it had under former President Hosni Mubarak.
