Egypt: Second round of parliamentary election
Egyptians in nine provinces - Alexandria, Gharbia, Qalyoubeya, Beheira, Ismaelia, Suez, Port Said, Qena, Fayyoum - started voting Sunday in the second round of a parliamentary election. All in all, there are 1,706 candidates competing in 72 constituencies in this round. Some 10,531,000 voters will take part in voting which will be held in more than 10,000- sub-voting stations.

 

Candidates associated with the Muslim Brotherhood won 34 seats in the first round of the elections on Nov. 9, more than doubling its representation in the outgoing parliament.

 

The ruling NDP party gained 112 seats in the first round. All 454 places in the parliament are up for election in the three-stage process that concludes Dec. 1.
