  • Editorial: Battle for the constitution

    The real bone of contention between SCAF and the Brotherhood is the constitution.

    BY RANIA AL MALKY Cairo: Today is a very happy day in the history of Egypt. Those who elected Morsi are happy because he won, and those who elected Shafik are happy because he won; and those who boycotted are happy because Tantawi tricked them both. Those who hate Mubarak are happy because he’s dead and those who love him are happy because he’s still alive. God bless Egyptian hashish. So went the joke, which in a few words summed up the level of chaos, polarization and disinformation suffocating Egyptians today, less than 24 hours before the Presidential Election Committee…

    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…

    A Shafik stronghold

    BY FARAH SAAFAN Menufiya: Clapping and cheering, supporters of Hosni Mubarak’s last prime minister and now a presidential candidate, danced to the rhythm of a popular chant “The People Want Ahmed Shafik.” In Menufiya, ousted president Mubarak’s hometown, Shafik is the leading contender in Egypt’s divisive presidential runoff.

    Why I’m voting

    BY SARAH EL SIRGANY Cairo: When the results of the first round were announced, the choice was clear for me. It wasn’t difficult. In case of a runoff between a representative of the Mubarak regime and another candidate, then I’m choosing the latter. No brainer. Ahmed Shafik is an ex-air force commander, a long-time civil aviation minister under Hosni Mubarak and the last prime minister appointed by the ousted president in a theatrical attempt to appease the masses in January 2011. His incompetence as prime minister — showcased in his inability for over a month to do any of the…

    Detained activists released

    The scorching heat didn't deter women from lining up to cast their vote at Almaza School.

    BY SAFAA ABDOUN Cairo: Reports of the arrest of activists and journalists marred the first day of Egypt’s contentious presidential election runoff pitting ex-regime icon Ahmed Shafik against the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi. According to Mahmoud Afify, official spokesman of the April 6 Youth Movement, 30 members of the group were arrested near polling stations in Cairo, Giza, Alexandria, Minya and Beheira but were released by the prosecutor several hours later. “They were standing in front of the polling stations carrying the pictures of the martyrs to remind people of those who gave up their lives for Egypt,” said Afify….

    Sharqiya turns against MB

    Despite voting Brotherhood in the PA elections, Sharqiya, the birthplace of the two rivaling candidates, chose Shafik in the first round.

    BY SAFAA ABDOUN Sharqiya: For the residents of Sharqiya, the presidential election is a vendetta against the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). In the first round, ex-air force commander Ahmed Shafik won the Delta province with 627,808 votes, 90,000 more than Mohamed Morsi’s 536,634 votes. Sharqiya was supposed to be an easy win for the MB’s Morsi, who served as the province’s MP in 2000-2005. While Shafik’s sweeping win stunned observers, residents of the area were unsurprised. The Freedom and Justice Party, the Brotherhood’s political arm led by Morsi, had won 18 of 30 seats in Sharqiya during the parliamentary elections just…

    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…
