The graphic below gives a visual representation of Egypt's new People's Assembly, the lower house of parliament. Each block represents a single seat, and the seats are colour-coded according to alliances.

The largest number of seats, more than 46 per cent, went to the Democratic Alliance, the bloc headed by the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party; the Nour Party, a Salafi group, came second with nearly a quarter of the vote. Liberal parties won less than 25 per cent of the available seats.
