Cairo , Tahrir SQ , June 24, 2012
The Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsy is Egypt’s next president, the Presidential Elections Commission (PEC) announced on Sunday.

Morsy will be Egypt's first civilian president since the foundation of the modern republic.

Morsy took 51.73 percent of the vote, compared to Ahmed Shafiq's 48.27 percent, Farouq Sultan, the head of the PEC, said. 26.4 million of Egypt's 50.95 million eligible voters cast ballots. Nearly 1 million votes were counted as invalid.

The confirmation of Morsy’s victory comes a week after the run-off vote between Morsy and Ahmed Shafiq, a former air force commander and the last prime minister under deposed President Hosni Mubarak.
