Islamists set for gains in Mubarak’s hometown

Parties banned under former president’s rule expected to do well in second round of parliamentary polls.

In Egypt, Islamist parties are expected to continue their winning streak in the second round of parliamentary elections on Wednesday.

The areas they are targeting for success include Menoufia, the hometown of former president Hosni Mubarak.

While there is no love lost for Mubarak there, some are concerned about the new emerging powers – parties which were banned under the former president’s rule.
