(NEW YORK, N.Y.)-- On Sunday the results of the Egyptian presidential run-off will be announced. Both Presidential candidates Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq and Mohammed Mursi had considered both appealing because both candidates have claimed victory and say they will appoint unity governments the BBC World News reports.
The country has been deeply polarized over this issue. Supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood have demanded the outcome of the Presidential results and had a vigil in Tahir Square to condemn Egypt's rulers to seize sweeping powers.
Last week, the military dissolved the Parliament and claimed the power of the Legislature. Activist Wael Ghoneim (who was influential in the January 2011 revolution against Hosni Mubarak) has been providing support for the Mr. Mursi. Although Mr. Shafiq came in second to Mr. Mursi in last month's round, he publicly announced that he was the true victor. In addition, opponents of the brotherhood are in dispute of the claim that Mr. Mursi won the run-off.
