Morsy wins presidency with 51.13 percent of the polls.

Post by DJKeefy »

According to Al-Masry Al-Youm's count, the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsy garnered 51.13 percent of the vote, securing the post of the president, after a fierce run-off that pushed former Prime Minister Ahmad Shafiq out of the race with a slim difference.

Morsy gathered 12,322,549 votes, while Shafiq got 12,201,549 which amounts for 48.87 percent of the vote.

Morsy consolidated gains in most Upper Egyptian cities and villages where he led in the first round of the presidential race. Shafiq came first in most of the Delta cities where he also established himself in the first round of the polls. Morsy secured a first position in 18 governorates out of 27, including Giza, Alexandria, Beheira, Minya, Assiut, Fayoum, Qena, Matrouh, North and South Sinai. Shafiq came first in nine governorates, including Cairo, Port Said, Sharqiya, Menufiya and Luxor.

In Cairo, home for 6.5 million voters, Shafiq came first with 56 percent of the vote. Giza, which follows Cairo in terms of voters' weight with 4.3 million voters, put Morsy in the lead at 60 percent.

Morsy got the highest voters' percentage in one place with 80 percent of the vote in Matrouh going for him.

Valid votes came at 24,965,772.

Turnout was approximately 49.7 percent of the 50,524,933 eligible voters nationwide, a surge from the first round of the presidential elections where the turnout was at 46.42 percent. The highest turnout was witnessed in the two Delta governorates of Sharqiya and Qalyubia, while the lowest turnout was in the two Upper Egyptian governorates of Qena and Aswan.

Official results are to be announced by the Presidential Elections Commission on Thursday, after looking into appeals in the vote counting process throughout the week.

Morsy's initial win follows a set of constitutional amendments that further empower the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces which has been assuming the executive functions of the state since 12 February 2011. Morsy's victory also follows a recently dissolved Parliament where his party held the majority of seats, after the Supreme Constitutional Court contested the legal basis of the parliamentary elections.
