Elections Return Egypt to Muslim Brotherhood vs Military

Hosted by

There were more than a dozen presidential candidates for voters to choose from over the past two days in this week's first free presidential election in the history of Egypt. Nobody was surprised when yesterday, it was clear that the biggest plurality went to Mohamed Morsi, the candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood. Today, it appeared the other place in next month's runoff will be filled by Ahmed Shafik. A late entry into the race, the last prime minister for the Mubarak regime was considered a dark horse. That's according to David Kirkpatrick, Cairo Bureau Chief for the New York Times.
