Egypt’s two main Islamist parties have won an overwhelming victory with the completion of the second-round run-off election this week.

After three rounds of staggered elections to vote in a new Egyptian parliament, the Muslim Brotherhood’s political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party, has won the most votes, with the ultra-conservative Salifists a close second. Though final results have not yet been publicized, Egypt’s Islamists have won two thirds of seats in the lower house of parliament.

The Freedom and Justice Party is claiming 41 percent of seats, and the Salafi Al-Nour party 27 percent. The liberal Egyptian Bloc has won just 9 percent of seats. Elections for the upper house of parliament will begin at the end of this month.

Those people, mostly the young, who went out and actually fought for democracy, are going to be gutted.
They, I am sure did not want this.

Nay.. it is the idealist Youth who probably tipped the scales towards the Islamists.

The demographics of the Middle East point to that, as well as the fact that the hot-beds of most Islamic brainwashing and neo-extremism is at universities.
I can't speak about how much of the Constitution is in effect anymore... But thank God we still somewhat resemble a Republic and not a democracy!
