Mahmoud, who do you think wins ?

Probably Morsi, because the Brotherhood did already very well in the parliamentary elections ?

Looks like a vote between cancer and ebola to me ... Tongue

Turnout seems low for being the first free election in several decades...

Danish state TV quote Al-Akhbar for saying that a court decision on june 11. can prevent "ex-Mubarak officials" from participating in the second round. Could give Sabahi a second chance.

Well, it depends. If the MB can gather other political forces around them, like Fotouh and Sabahi's voters, then Morsi will win. If though they refuse to vote and boycott the second round, then it's a hard guess, with me believing Shafiq would have a slightly better chance.

Actually such a law was already made by the parliament around a month ago or so, that would have actually prevented Omar Sulaiman and Shafiq from running into elections. But the elections commitee strangely put them back into the race, and now there are marches demanding them to take Shafiq out of the second round, for Sabahi to be in. Well, we just wait and see.

Have any of you seen any reliable data on the voting pattern of the Coptic Christians? It would be interesting to see their preferences. I guess you could deduct the info from voting pattern from certain districts, but I am unsure of the exact demographical distribution of Copts on a district level.

Overwhelmingly Shafik I'd think. Likewise with the Sufi minority, I hear.

In Constitution, what is most likely? Egypt as federal state or unitary state? Federalism would be a not so unlegitimate way to prevent a big power for MB. Imagine a Sabbahi as Governor of Cairo.

Mahmoud, the conventional wisdom in the English language media seems to be that the outrage over the Mubarak verdict is sure to help Morsi.  Is this what people are saying in Egypt as well?

I heard that a Muslim Brotherhood campaign worker was shot dead, but that's all the news I've heard.

Guardian election blog:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/middle-east-live/2012/jun/17/egypt-elections-shafiq-morsi-live?newsfeed=true

Quote
Shorouk update: 50 reporting, 85,435 for Morsi, 65,795 for Shafiq.

It looks like Shafiq's people are accusing the Muslim Brotherhood of electoral fraud, rather than the other way around.....suggesting that Morsi is winning.

Latest update from the Guardian:

Quote
The Muslim Brotherhood's candidate Mohammed Morsi has taken an early lead with up to a quarter of the votes counted. But the campaign of former prime minister Ahmed Shafiq is claiming that he will triumph.

Shafiq's campaign made more than 100 complaints about ballot rigging by the Muslim Brotherhood. A spokesman said: "The Muslim Brotherhood systematic election violations prove how they do not believe in freedom of choice and democracy unless it brings them to power."

The level of voting was hit by apathy and a boycott campaign, which will lead to questions of legitimacy for Egypt's next president, whoever he is. Turnout was reported to be between 15% and 40%. Polling was extended by two hours in a bid to boost turnout.

Well, it's been a while since I posted here. Blame that on the exams Cheesy

Anyway, the first results show that Mursi is the new Egyptian president with 52.6% lead. That's around 11,973,841 votes, and Shafiq having 10,782,190 votes, or 47.4% of the valid votes.
Final results are coming out on Tuesday Thursday.

Has Mursi said anything about the court invalidating the parliamentary elections?  Can he do anything about it once he's president?

Results to be certified this weekend, possibly sooner.  Rumors abound that SCAF will just declare Shafiq president.
