Now here is in English the results of the individual seats in details of the first stage of the Egyptian parliamentary elections , the people’s assembly elections by Hany Rasmy and Evan Hill. Here is also a version of the individual seats in Arabic from Ahram Arabic portal.
Up till now we do not understand any thing when it comes to the list , we do not understand if we should wait for the final lists seats results or what. Anyhow Mostafa El Hoshy on twitter made a nice diagram about the lists votes results announced past week.
According to the HCE the voting percentage in the first stage of parliamentary elections 2011/2012 is 62% which is the highest percentage in the history of parliamentary elections in Egypt. “According to the chairman of the HCE it is the highest percentage since the pharaohs !!”
Back to the HCE numbers the total number of voters in the 9 governorates are 13,614,525. Only 8,449,115 voters have casted their votes last week. The nullified votes in the 9 governorates are 517,967 votes from 8,449,115 votes. The correct votes are 7,931,148 votes. The number of general polling stations are 28 while the subsidiary polling stations are 9837 in the 9 governorates. 10,148 judges have supervised this stage.
There are run offs between the MB and Salafists which is interesting and there are run offs between religious trend and liberal treat as well which is more polarizing. Mostafa El Hoshy did another diagram about the secular liberal list and Islamists list in the govvernorates , it is amazing
Now you must know the Salafists rising power is a threat to the Muslim brotherhood because now the conservative vote unlike what you think is spilt between the MB and the Salafists who are more conservative. If it were not the Salafists , the MB would have swept this stage and these elections to be honest.There will be a 30 run offs between the MB’s FJ party and the Salafists in this round. Actually knowing how the MB think , I believe there can be an alliance between the MB and liberal more than the MB and Salafists because the MB got old connections with the outside world especially the States and EU unlike the new comers aka Salafists.
When we read the numbers we find that the liberal powers had a good chance but unfortunately they spilt votes among themselves, and the best example on this is how Nihal Ahady spoiled the opportunity of Gamila Ismail as she got 11,000 votes our revolutionary wonderful lady needed to put an end for the Kasr Al Nil constituency race so easily. I hope in the reruns as well in the upcoming stages we avoid this. Of course there are no ladies in the re-runs.
Strangely the NDP orphans did not win as expected in this stage including the big shots of the NDP like for instance Omar Haridy and this shows that we overestimated their powers.
Of course this is not the end , this is just the beginning.
- Freedom and Justice party got 3,565,092 votes
- Salafist Nour party got 2,371,713 votes
- The Egyptian bloc got 1,414,059 votes
- The Wafd party got 690,077 votes
- The Wasat party got 415,059 votes

I am shocked and surprised that the Wafd party got more than the Wasat party and El Ad party , I am shocked and surprised. Is it the campaigning tactics ? After all the Wafd party got these annoying ads day and night especially on the Al Hayat TV network !? I am quite shocked and surprised.
