Rights groups have accused Egypt's ruling party of using 'fraud and thuggery' to ensure a sweeping victory in parliamentary elections.
Three people are reported to have been killed in poll-related violence.
Egypt's High Elections Commission acknowledged some irregularities and violence, but said the elections were a success and the results will stand when announced.One outcome most already knows is that the Muslim Brotherhood, which is banned as a political party but fields candidates as independents, will not have the same presence as it did in the previous parliament with 88 seats.No one in Egypt had doubts about which party will win the majority of seats. But the question is what does this mean for the future Egypt and its civil society after 30 years of rule by the National Democratic Party.Al Jazeera's Ayman Mohyeldin reports from Cairo.
