Mubarak to win Egypt polls
EGYPT: Egypt Tuesday awaited the final results of a Parliamentary
election expected to deliver sweeping gains for President Hosni
Mubarak’s ruling party and a rout for the Islamist opposition.
The United States, meanwhile, voiced concern over “intimidation by
security forces” on voting day.
According to government daily Al-Ahram, the National Democratic Party
(NDP) won more than 170 of 508 parliamentary seats while the Muslim
Brotherhood, Egypt’s main opposition party, failed to win a single seat
Al-Ahram and Al-Masri Al-Yom newspapers said the secular opposition
only won six seats, three of which went to the liberal Wafd party. AFP
