It is now official: the new president of Egypt is Mohammed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood candidate who squeaked into office with 51.73 percent of t he vote. President Morsi won 13.2 million votes out of a total of just over 26 million in the June 16-17 runoff against Hosni Mubarak’s last prime minister and former air force commander, Ahmed Shafiq. It was the first democratic election in Egyptian history.

With the result, the specter of a stolen election, which the Islamists would have surely decried had Shafiq been declared the winner, receded, and with it the possibility that the Algerian scenario of 1991- 92 would repeat itself, plunging Egypt into chaos and violence.
