Excellent.  I was just firing up the computer and getting ready to go look to see if anybody had results tallied yet.  And here they are for me.

What irks me most are the number of votes for the Muslim Brotherhood candidates from abroad. Methinks they should be deported back to Egypt.

I'm getting a 404 error on that link to voting results.

Well if they took it offline you still have the percentages here. Try checking a few Egyptian blogs

I was able to view the link.

Apparently the MB is well represented in Egypt too.

I can understand people who have lived under dictatorship looking for something, anything, that will give them hope for a better future. And I can understand people wanting the stability that an organized entity seems to offer. But care must be taken that you don't let those feelings override caution.

Having said that, should the MB hold on to the lead, they will be in a position of being responsible for governing a country. Not an easy task when it comes right down to it. Especially a country such as Egypt with many current and future needs. Caution on their part would be wise as well.

I tried the link again after Lynnette posted.  It connected right up.
