Egypt’s Islamic parties won a resounding victory in the first elections since the overthrow of dictator Hosni Mubarak in February 2011, garnering over two-thirds of the seats in the new People’s Assembly.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s party – The Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) – won 235 seats in the national legislature (47.18%), the Salafist Al-Nur party came second with 121 seats (24.29%), and the liberal Wafd party was third with 9%.

The two-chamber People’s Assembly is particularly important because it is responsible for selecting a 100-member panel to draft a constitution.

A new president will be elected by June 2012.
