After living for years in a totalitarian government with Hosni Mubarak, Egypt is getting prepared with great expectations, to choose their new leader.
In the second round, the Egyptian people must choose between an Islamist and a figure of the old regime. Around 51 million citizens need to choose between Mohamed Mursi (Muslim Brotherhood) and exmilitar Shafiq Ahmed, Mubarak’s last prime minister
This has divided the country and the people fear the return of the old regime, if Shafiq is elected. Others will oppose religious interference in the political life of Egypt, if the Muslim Brotherhood wins.
Official results will be announced on June 21.
