The Muslim Brotherhood have 75 seats
75 seats people. They won 28 more in the run-off, making their second stage total 41 and their complete total so far 75 seats respectively. That's 10 seats above the 65 mark needed for them to have a presidential candidate. Hehehehehehe. Why am I laughing? What's so funny about that? I am not sure. Humor....sheer terror....it's a fine line really. On the other hand, this recent development may cause Mubarak to disband the new parliament citing irregularities in voting. This possibility is looking more and more as an option he may have to take in order to ward off competition against his own son in the next election. Otherwise Mubarak will have to wait at least 5 of his 6 year term until the next parliamentary elections and make sure they don't get 65 candidates and then step down and leave it to Gammal. Either way things are going to suck for democrcay and Egypt, and the possibility of violence chaos and anarchy will keep rising with every passing day. Fantastic news, no? Update: The Brotherhood are running 49 more candidates in the third stage. I say they will get at least 100 seats overall. Anyone willing to take this bet?
