Muslim Brotherhood Candidate Wins Egyptian Presidency

Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi has won the Egyptian election for president, the Associated Press reported.

The official vote count of last weekend's presidential election was released on Sunday, revealing Morsi to be the winner with 51.7 percent of the vote to opponent Ahmed Shafiq's 48.3 percent.

 

The vote comes after months of unrest in Egypt, as a military friendly to former Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak took control of the country, sparking an outcry from Egyptian citizens.
