Live updates: Results trickle in for presidential elections

Post by DJKeefy »

After Egypt's historic presidential poll, countrywide vote counting continues into morning and results indicate a hotly contested race.

All 13,000 polling stations in Egypt are shutting their doors after two days of voting in Egypt's first genuine multi-candidate presidential elections. Earlier on Thursday, the electoral commission extended voting hours until 9pm.

While some stations have already begun counting votes, others are still waiting until all remaining voters have cast their ballots.

Military and police are on high alert to safeguard the ballot boxes throughout the counting process. The primary vote count will be performed by the electoral sub-committees inside the polling stations.

Each sub-committee will inform the candidates' campaign offices of the total number of votes cast in their favour.

LATEST
6:04 FINAL results are in from the Upper Egyptian governorate of Qena, according to Al-Hayat TV. A total of 377,092 voters cast their ballot with turnout reaching 23.5 per cent.

1. Mursi 97,267 (25.8 per cent)
2. Shafiq 83,931 (22.2 per cent)
3. Abul-Fotouh 78,789 (20.8 per cent)
4. Moussa 74,909 (19.8 per cent)
5. Sabbahi 42,196 (11.2 per cent)

16:30 FINAL Results in 25 governorates aggregated by Ahram Online shows that with about 41.8 per cent turnout, the Muslim Brotherhood's candidate Mohamed Mursi remains in the lead, followed by Ahmed Shafiq, Mubarak's last prime minister, while the leftist candidate, Hamdeen Sabbahi, who proved to be the dark horse of the race, fell back to third place.
