The Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice party is slated to take 45% of the seats in Egypt’s lower house of parliament.

The Freedom and Justice party will be the major force in the Egypt’s newly configured parliament when its doors open in just over a week, and questions abound about how it will exercise its new-found authority while managing heightened public expectations.

The more conservative Salafists, with whom the US has refused to meet, are expected to gain 25% of the total seats.

Final confirmation of the results are yet to emerge, but with 85% of the seats declared, analysts say the remaining contests will not shift the parliamentary balance of the parties.
