The campaign team of Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Mursi claimed Saturday that he had won 69 percent of the vote after the first-day of a two-day run-off election to determine Egypt's first freely-elected president in the country's history, Egyptian daily Al-Ahram reported.

Morsy is facing Ahmed Shafiq, who served as former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak's prime minister in the final days of his rule.
