The Egyptians are waiting for the consequences of the first presidential election since the collapse last year of former President Hosni Mubarak
, who was in a coma Wednesday after being transferred from prison to a military hospital in Cairo. The electoral commission was to hold a press conference Thursday to announce the results of the second round held on 16 and 17 June, after considering appeals filed by the candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood Mohamed Morsi and his rival, , Ahmad Shafiq. but this was postponed because of studying the appeals offered by the two candidates from the part of Supreme electoral committee . Both candidates have won each proclaim victory. The ousted president, aged 84, taken Tuesday evening to Tora prison in southern Cairo to a nearby military hospital, is in a coma and had to be put on life support, said AFP and medical military sources. "It is not clinically dead" as announced earlier official MENA news agency said a medical source. State television said overnight that a official statement would be "soon" posted on the health of former president, who reportedly suffered a stroke. The health of Mr. Mubarak, a taboo under his presidency, is subject to much speculation and conflicting reports from his fall under the pressure of a popular revolt in February 2011. Many Egyptians suspect the issue to be exploited to generate compassion for the former officer or secure him preferential treatment, and many feel it belongs to the past anyway. The state of Mr. Mubarak would have declined sharply after his incarceration there just over two weeks, security sources said reports of acute depression, difficulty breathing and hypertension. His family had asked that he be transferred to be detained in hospital, as was the case prior to sentencing on June 2 to life imprisonment for the deaths of demonstrators during the revolt of January-February 2011 that the pushed to resign. Information on a threat to his health occur in a climate of tension and uncertainty about the next head of state. "These are the most critical 48 hours of the country's history", said the government newspaper al-Ahram. An independent panel of judges, headed by former President of the Union of Judges Zakaria Abdel Aziz, who was supervising the voting, gave Mr. Morsi winner of the presidential. But the next president, whoever he is, is far from the near-absolute power enjoyed by Mubarak during his three decades at the head of Egypt.
