CAIRO  — Hundreds of Muslim Brotherhood supporters protested outside vote counting stations on Monday, scuffling with police and denouncing what they called widespread fraud in Egypt's parliament elections as the government appeared to determined to ensure its monopoly on the legislature in uncertain political times.

The protests in Cairo and Alexandria capped a day of voting in which many independent monitors were barred from polling stations amid reports of ballot box stuffing and vote buying. In some places, government candidates were seen passing out cash and food to voters near polling stations.

Overhanging Sunday's parliamentary vote was the more significant presidential election set for next year. For the first time in nearly 30 years, there are questions over the presidential vote.
