Dr Morsy's Message To The Egyptians living Abroad

The Supreme Presidential Electoral Commission (SPEC) will inform today the results of the elections for Egypt''s president, even though it did not manage to demobilize the people camped in the capital''s Tahrir Square.

The SPEC Secretary General, Hatem Bagato, said that on Sunday at 15:00h (13:00 GMT) will be held a press conference to release the outcome of the contest between Islamist Mohamed Morsy and former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq.

The SPEC took such a long time to announce the results because it had to investigate 440 reports on irregularities, while both Shafiq and Morsy rushed to declare themselves winners from unofficial counts that gave each 51 percent of votes.

On Thursday, the scheduled day for announcing the results, protests by followers of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), which nominated Morsy, became more intensive in order to denounce alleged ploys by the Military Junta to favor retired Colonel Shaqif.

On Friday a massive march was held in Tahrir Square and from then, hundreds of MB's followers still camp there, demanding public accountability of election results and rejected the ruling that dissolved the Parliament.
