Muslim Brotherhood Candidate Advances To Run-Off In Egyptian Election

The candidate representing Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has advanced to a run-off in the country’s first legitimate presidential election.

According to partial results from Friday’s vote, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi will face former prime minister Ahmed Shafiq in a June run-off.  The election is the result of last year’s uprising that ultimately led to the undoing of leader Hosni Mubarak.
