Mohamed Morsi of Muslim Brotherhood Declared Winner of Egyptian Presidency
Election regulators named Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood the winner of Egypt’s first competitive presidential elections, handing the Islamist group a symbolic triumph and a new weapon in its struggle for power with the ruling military council.
His victory is an ambiguous milestone in Egypt’s promised transition to democracy after the ouster 16 months ago of President Hosni Mubarak. After an election that international monitors called credible, the military-led government has recognized an electoral victory by an opponent of military rule over a former air force general, Ahmed Shafik, who promised harmony with the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces. A public ballot count after the polls closed last weekend had already shown Mr. Morsi the winner, pending certification by a commission of Mubarak-appointed judges.
