Egyptian Islamists win first round

Saturday, December 3rd, 2011

With the first of three rounds of parliamentary elections completed in Egypt, it’s estimated that Islamic fundamentalists have won some 65% of the vote.

The Muslem Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party won approximately 40% of the vote, while the Salafis Party, an even more extremist Islamic party came in second with 25% of the vote.

While the Muslim Brotherhood have only talked about modifying parts of the Israel-Egypt peace treaty of 1979, the Salfis have talked about opening up the entire treaty to a national referendum.
