Muslim Brotherhood Wins Big In Egypt Elections


Damanhur, Egypt (AHN) - According to partial results announced Monday, the Muslim Brotherhood has won at least eight seats in the second round of Egypt’s parliamentary elections.

The wins bring the Brotherhood’s total so far to 42 seats, a large jump from the 15 it had in Egypt’s outgoing parliament.

The ruling National Democratic Party won three seats; Brotherhood candidates won eight and other independent candidates won nine. Many of the non-Brotherhood independents will likely join the NDP after their victories.

Widespread violence marred Sunday’s voting as clashes broke out nationwide between Brotherhood supporters, ruling party supporters and police. They clashed with knives, chains and Molotov cocktails, reports The Associated Press.

At least one person was killed in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria, while police used tear gas to break up rioting in the Nile delta.
