    2012 Egyptian presidential election انتخابات الرئاسة المصرية

    The first post-Mubarak Egyptian presidential election is scheduled to take place on May 23rd/24th.
    If no candidate gains 50% of the vote, the top two candidates receiving the most votes advance to a runoff held on June 16th/17th
    There are 11 candidates to take part in the election (originally 23 people had registered before 10 disqualified, 2 withdrew)
    The winner will become the 5th President of the Arab Republic of Egypt.

    Egypt is the most populous Arab state and can be considered the center of the Arab world.
    Let's hope that this election will take EGYPT and all the Egyptian people to a peaceful and prosperous future
