Egypt’s electoral commission announced today that Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Morsi defeated former Mubarak foreign minister Ahmed Shafik . . . Morsi won 51.73% of the vote; Shafik won 48.27% . . . voter turnout was 51.85% . . . massive numbers of Egyptians in Cairo’s Tahrir Square – many of them Muslim Brotherhood supporters – celebrated the result amid massive security that was standing by for a violent response if Shafik was named the victor . . . Morsi’s win will not end divisions in the country given concerns by Christians and liberals about an Islamist president and the recent dissolution of parliament . . . there are reports of backroom deals to force Morsi to agree to accept the dissolution of parliament, moves by the military to increase its power, and limits on the power of the president before the military would allow him to be named the winner.
