  • PEC reviews appeals

    The PEC received over 400 appeals from both candidates.

    By DALIA RABIE Cairo: Uncertainty in Egypt reached a fever pitch as the Presidential Election Committee (PEC) postponed the announcement of the final results until Saturday or Sunday, saying it needs more time to look into the appeals filed by both candidates. Originally scheduled for Thursday, the election runoff results were delayed when the PEC received over 400 appeals which it must investigate before making a final decision on the winner. This round’s official results are especially divisive as both the Freedom and Justice Party’s Mohamed Morsi and Ahmed Shafik, Mubarak’s last prime minister, claim victory with 52 and 51…

    Mubarak on life support

    Screen grab from footage of Mubarak's last court appearance when he was sentenced to life for failing to stop the killing of protesters.

    BY RANIA AL MALKY Cairo: Amid a slew of leaks, rumors and official statements by anonymous sources, along with much fear-mongering, news of ousted president Hosni Mubarak’s deteriorating health was met with a massive dose of skepticism. Initial reports on Tuesday evening that Mubarak was dead, soon gave way to a report by an official Middle East News Agency (MENA) report that he was clinically dead and on life support. By late Tuesday one of his lawyers denied the news, saying that Mubarak was in a coma after suffering a brain stroke and that he was moved to the military…

    BY SARAH EL SIRGANY and RANIA AL MALKY Cairo: It was hyped up as a confrontation between military-led state institutions and election legitimacy, but the anticlimactic arrival of a handful of members of the recently dissolved parliament on Tuesday revealed that no one had confrontation in mind except some enthusiastic protesters. On Monday night, an official at the Freedom and Justice Party, whose MPs constitute the bigger part of the Islamist majority, said that MPs will march to parliament on Tuesday to attend the session as scheduled. The same official, Yasser Ali, was vague about the prospect of confrontation. The…

    SCAF ups powers

    Screen grab from a previous press conference by head of SCAF and Defence Minister Filed Marshall Hussein Tantawi.

    BY AMIRA SALAH-AHMED AND DALIA RABIE Cairo: Egypt’s Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) issued a constitutional declaration late Sunday, broadening its powers just hours before the preliminary results of the presidential election, and three days after dissolving parliament. The document complements the one issued on March 30, 2011 — after the January uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak and installed SCAF as Egypt’s de facto ruler. The 63-article March decree was based on an earlier public referendum on 10 constitutional amendments. A majority of Egyptians voted yes in the referendum and had their voice reflected in part of the…

    SCAF vs. PA in final showdown

    Protesters face barbed wire and military police outside the SCC on Thursday.

    BY RANIA AL MALKY Cairo: The political atmosphere in Egypt has reached a fever pitch, hours before an anticipated amendment to the interim constitution is to be issued by the ruling army council (SCAF), according to state media. As a dwindling number of voters cast their vote in the runoff to the presidential election, which pits Mubarak-era prime minister Ahmed Shafik against the Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Morsi, a showdown between the Islamist dominated People’s Assembly and SCAF is set to culminate in a complementary constitutional decree that would define the powers of the president and give SCAF legislative authority….

    BY AMIRA SALAH-AHMED Cairo: The early part of day one of the runoff in Egypt’s first post-Hosni Mubarak presidential election saw a palpably lower turnout compared to the first round.

    Court allows Shafik to run

    Some protested the presidential bid of Shafik in front of the Constitutional Court.

    Cairo: In a landmark verdict, Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC) Thursday declared unconstitutional amendments to the political participation law that would have resulted in the exclusion of presidential candidate Ahmed Shafik. In the same highly anticipated session, the court upheld a previous lower court ruling that the law governing parliamentary elections was unconstitutional, hence annulling the legislative elections. The court case against the parliament law challenged four articles allowing political parties to field candidates to contest seats allocated to non-partisan individuals. According to initial news reports about the ramifications of the second ruling, this will result in the dissolution of…
