A group of independent judges in Egypt said on Wednesday (June 20th) that Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood's candidate for president, won the election against former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq.
The group, called "Judges for Egypt", said Morsi collected 13.2 million votes while Shafiq obtained 12.4 million, according to Ahram Online. The judges said they monitored the election process independently.
The announcement is similar to results Morsi's campaign declared, but official election results are not scheduled to be announced until Thursday. The Supreme Presidential Elections Commission, which will declare the winner, said it is not finished counting the votes.
Shafiq also declared that he had won the election.
