Muslim Brotherhood member Mohamed Morsi was on Sunday declared the
first president of Egypt since a popular uprising ousted Hosni Mubarak,
capping a tumultuous and divisive military-led transition. Morsi, who ran against Mubarak-era minister Ahmed Shafiq, won 51.73
percent of the vote after a race that had polarised the nation.
Morsi’s victory marks the first time Islamists have taken the
presidency of the Arab World’s most populous nation. Thousands of his supporters who had packed into Cairo’s Tahrir
Square erupted in celebration, waving flags and posters of the Islamist
leader. “God is greatest” and “down with military rule” they chanted as some
set off firecrackers minutes after the electoral commission formally
declared the result.
