Egyptians celebrate Mohammed Mursi's victory in Port Said

Politics Bur Saʿid, Egypt - 24 June 2012

Egyptians gathered in Port Said on June 24, 2012 to celebrate Mohammed Mursi's victory in Egypt's first democratic presidential elections.

Mursi, the Muslim Brotherhood's candidate, defeated former prime minister Ahmed Shafiq, winning 51.73% of the vote in the run-off elections. He is the former chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party. 

Our contributor writes:

"After the Supreme Elections Commission pronounced the Victory of [Muslim] Brotherhood Candidate Dr. Mursi, his supporters in Port Said are Celebrating his Victory on the streets of the City.

Even Supporters of other Liberal Candidates from the first round are happy that the first democratic Election ended not with [Morsi's] Opponent Dr Shafiq, whom they see as representative of the old system.

'I don't like him (Mursi)  but I voted for him because with Shafiq we would not have any Democracy,' said Selim, Member of April 6th Movement in Port Said."
