The official results for the Egyptian presidency have not been released yet. The candidate tied for last place in preelection polling, Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, is claiming victory. Shafiq is challenging that claim.

Guess who is in charge of the final vote count and announcing the winner? Egypt's military high command.

Will the military prevail with this massive election fraud?

Will the conservative interests of the United States and the Gulf Cooperation Council prevail?

Just two days after the end of voting, trade unions along with professional organizations staged a protest of a recent decree giving police and military intelligence unlimited powers to arrest citizens.

The fight has only begun.

*The 15% turnout figure comes from onsite estimates in The Independent and the observations of various press organizations on the scene.

Official turnout figures were not released yesterday, but electoral observers it could be as low as 15 per cent. From an electorate of 50 million, that would mean Egypt's next President had been chosen from a total of about seven million votes. "We think the turnout definitely did not exceed 15 per cent," said Sherine el-Touny, of the Egyptian monitoring body Shayfeencom. "Even if it was 30 per cent, that would mean we had seen 17 million voters on the streets, but I don't think we saw that today." The Independent, June 18
