CAIRO - A Muslim Brotherhood official said on Friday the group's candidate in the first free presidential election in Egypt would enter a run-off vote next month with the last prime minister to serve Hosni Mubarak before he was ousted in a popular uprising.

"It is clear that the run-off will be between (the Brotherhood's) Mohamed Mursi and Ahmed Shafiq," he told Reuters, adding that the group's governing body was meeting to determine campaign strategy for the run-off. With most votes counted, he said Mursi had 25 percent and Shafiq had 23 percent.
