    A protester prays in Tahrir Square.

    BY AMRO ALI ​Subtlety is not a strong feature of the Egyptian landscape, whether you look at its overt religious piety, emphasis on a person’s title, the fragrance generously sprayed that heralds a person’s arrival from 15 meters away, the imposing pyramids, or Judge Farouk Sultan’s protracted defense of the “divinely-sanctioned” electoral commission before he could get around to just announcing the presidential winner. ​Yet the least subtle of any Egyptian agency has to be the league of “extraordinary” gentlemen — the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF). In seizing all branches of government, ripping up the constitution and…

    Morsi to announce Cabinet in days

    The PEC announced that Morsi won 51.73 percent of the votes.

    BY EGYPT MONOCLE Cairo: Tahrir Square erupted in celebration as the head of Egypt’s Presidential Election Committee (PEC) announced the victory of the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate Mohamed Morsi. PEC chief Farouk Sultan said that Morsi won 13,230,131 votes, accounting for 51.73 percent. His rival, the last Mubarak-era prime minister and military man Ahmed Shafik raked in 12,347,380 votes, which is 48.27 percent, in an election that saw 51 percent voter turnout, with over 26 million Egyptians showing up at the polls. During the press conference, Sultan detailed some of the main appeals filed by both candidates, and explained PEC’s decisions,…

    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…

    A toothless president?

    Screen grab shows Mamdouh Shahin during the press conference held on Monday.

    BY DALIA RABIE Cairo: Somewhere between casting the ballots and announcing a winner, the incoming president’s authorities were outlined through a constitutional declaration issued by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces. Late Sunday, SCAF published an addendum to the constitutional declaration complementing the one issued on March 30, 2011, arguably stripping the president of basic authorities, rendering him practically powerless. As SCAF broadened its powers, it chipped away at the authorities the elected president was expected to assume. In the face of criticism, SCAF member General Mohamed Al-Asaar assured in a press conference Monday that the elected president will…

    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.

    Menufiya: Back to 2005

    In Menufiya, the birthplace of Mubarak, over 50 percent of voters chose Shafik in the first round.

    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…

    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….

    PEC: Runoff violations limited

    The first day of the runoff saw a lower turnout compared to the first round.

    BY DALIA RABIE At the press conference Saturday evening, Sultan refused to disclose in whose favor the ballots were marked, saying that it was “clear as day.” Forty-eight violations of the electoral silence were also reported in front of polling stations and referred to the general prosecution, Sultan said. He added that the irregularities do not affect the electoral process. The first day of the runoff in Egypt’s first post-Mubarak presidential election saw a lower turnout compared to the first round. The runoff pits Mubarak’s last prime minister Ahmed Shafik against the candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice…

    Visibly lower turnout in runoff

    Polling stations saw a visibly lower turnout on day one of the runoff.

    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. As the sun beat down on protesters, the Presidential Election Committee extended voting by one hour and said polling stations will close at 9 pm. The expectation is that more voters will be encouraged to queue up after sunset. The runoff pits Mubarak’s last prime minister Ahmed Shafik against the candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party Mohamed Morsi, creating a sense of despondence amongst voters, many of…

    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…
