As some of you may have heard, yesterday, the Muslim Brotherhood announced the election of a new general guide, Mohammed Badie. It turned out to be a fraught and controversial internal election, pitting "conservatives" against "reformists" (for background see here and here). There has already been quite a bit of speculation on what these internal divisions might mean for the Middle East's largest and most influential Islamist movement. One hopes the Obama administration is watching carefully, particularly as Egypt is soon to hold both parliamentary and presidential elections.

I will have more to write on this in the coming days and weeks. In the meantime, I will be covering Badie's election, the aftermath, and, possibly, the fallout on twitter. You can follow me on twitter here. I will try to use the hash mark #MBegypt for my tweets, so feel free to use it as well to join the conversation.
