  • Runoff results: A reading

    BY AMIRA SALAH-AHMED Cairo: It’s a close race. Preliminary results show Mohamed Morsi, head of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, winning by 4 percent. Well, at least according to his campaign, which has so far held two press conferences announcing almost identical results, the first complete with a mini victory speech at 4 am on Monday. Morsi reportedly won 52 percent of the vote, while 48 percent went to his contender Ahmed Shafik, the last prime minister under ousted president Hosni Mubarak and his longtime civil aviation minister. Their preliminary results show that Morsi won a total 13,238,298…

    Menufiya: Back to 2005

    BY SARAH EL SIRGANY Menufiya: Little has changed at the birthplace of ousted president Hosni Mubarak and some of his top aides since the 2005 and 2010 legislative elections. Now as then, the network of the National Democratic Party (NDP) is in control, the opposition Muslim Brotherhood is a minority, and the vote is going to the candidate backed by the state. The regime-sanctioned violence of the 2005 PA elections aside, covering the election in Menufiya was almost like time travel. In the first round, ex-air force commander Ahmed Shafik swept the polls at the Delta province, winning over 50…

    Rocky road to constitution

    BY HEBA FAHMY Cairo: For months Egypt’s political parties struggled to reach consensus over the formation of the 100-member constituent assembly responsible for drafting the country’s first post-Mubarak constitution. Despite the objections of 10 political parties, which briefly threatened to upend the process once more, the panel was elected Tuesday. Only days before the presidential election runoff, when Islamist head of the Freedom and Justice Party Mohamed Morsi will contest the highest executive office against a stalwart supporter of the Mubarak regime, the party which holds the biggest block in parliament is facing criticism for once more attempting to dominate…

    Salafis forecast unified vote

    BY SARAH EL SIRGANY Cairo: In the parliamentary elections, they raked in over 7 million votes. But less than four months later, in the presidential election, they had no visible impact. Now, the ultraconservative Salafis are facing accusations of betrayal, naivete and internal division, undercutting their unexpectedly strong initial foray into politics. Novices on the political arena, they competed in the parliamentary elections against the more moderate Muslim Brotherhood, gaining 24 percent of the seats to the surprise of politicians and analysts. The decision of the Salafi Al-Nour Party to back former Muslim Brotherhood member Abdel Moneim Abol Fotoh in…

    Voters look for third option

    BY MAI SHAMS EL-DIN Cairo: Many Egyptians find themselves caught between a rock and a hard place in the first post-Mubarak presidential election. This political and moral dilemma of having to choose between an icon of the ousted regime and the Muslim Brotherhood candidate has boosted boycott calls as a viable third option. Former air force commander and Mubarak’s last prime minister Ahmed Shafik is slated to face off with the Freedom and Justice Party’s Mohamed Morsi in the June 16-17 runoff. Egyptians abroad have already started voting. The candidates embody the two extremes of a polarized political sphere. Shafik…

    Hamdeen Sabahi’s surprise rise

    BY MAI SHAMS EL-DIN Cairo: The time of miracles has gone, but the results of the first round in Egypt’s presidential election suggested it might not be over yet. A possible miracle was in the making and its name was Hamdeen Sabahi. As the results were slowly revealed over the course of one long night, observers and voters were expecting to see what corresponded to the opinion poll that consistently portrayed former Arab League chief Amr Moussa and former Muslim Brotherhood member Abdel Moniem Abol Fotoh as frontrunners. The upset that relegated the pair to fourth and fifth place and…
