Egypt's presidential election results delayed furthering fears of coup
Cairo, June 21 (ANI): Egypt has delayed the result of country's presidential run-off, raising fears that the army could mount a coup to prevent the formation of a democratically elected government.ccording to The Telegraph, the President Election Commission needs more time to review complaints by contesting candidates, which would delay the results.
"We cannot announce when exactly the timing of the announcement of the Egypt election results will be because now we are at the stage of listening to the representatives," The Telegraph quoted its secretary-general, Hatem Bagato, as saying.
"The committee will meet afterwards to decide on whether to accept the appeals or not," he said.
The Muslim Brotherhood and most newspapers and independent panels have claimed that Mohammed Morsi, the leader of the Brotherhood's political front the Freedom and Justice Party, has won the elections by a slight margin.
The Brotherhood spokesman, Mahmoud Ghozlan, has already warned that the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, which has ruled Egypt since Hosni Mubarak's overthrow last year, might be preparing to take the election.
He said that the refusal by Morsi's opponent, Ahmed Shafiq, a former general and Mubarak-era minister, to admit defeat and his insistence that he would be declared the winner has raised further suspicions that the army had 'bad intentions'.
"If Shafiq is declared the winner, this will make the coup clear. This encroachment on the result may lead to a confrontation between the people and the army," Ghozlah said. (ANI)
