CAIRO - An aide of Egypt's presidential candidate Ahmed Shafik, an ex-military man who was Hosni Mubarak's last prime minister, on Monday challenged the claim by the Muslim Brotherhood that it had won the vote.

The Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) said in a news conference that its candidate Mohamed Morsy had won 52.5 percent of the vote compared to Shafik's 47.5 percent with almost all votes counted.

"The campaign of Ahmed Shafik is astonished by the conference of the FJP that represents a violation of the laws of the election commission," Mahmoud Baraka, the media of Shafik's campaign, said, accusing the Brotherhood of "hijacking the election result."
