Muslim Brotherhood “wins” Egypt [Darleen Click] UPDATED
So, how’s that Arab Spring thing working out?
The Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi has officially won Egypt’s presidential election and will be the country’s next president, the electoral commission has announced.
Morsi picked up 13.2 million votes out of just over 26 million, giving him about 51 per cent of the vote. His competitor, Ahmed Shafiq, the final prime minister under Hosni Mubarak, received 12.3 million. More than 800,000 ballots were invalidated.
Come on, Left-illiberals, watch that We-are-all-Hamas-now video with declarations that millions of martyrs are to march to Jerusalem and make it the capital of the new caliphate and explain how this is so much better than Hosni Mubarack’s regime.
UPDATE Muslim Brotherhood statement from February 9, 2011
We do not intend to take a dominant role in the forthcoming political transition. We are not putting forward a candidate for the presidential elections scheduled for September.
