Egyptian voters are bracing for a presidential runoff pitting the former head of the air force, Ahmeh Shafik, against Muslim Brotherhood candidate Ahmed Morsi. Shafik has some voters thinking the revolution is a stake with his candidacy – he was Mubarak’s final prime minister plus he has a military background.
A Morsi presidency would put both parliament and the presidency in the pocket of the Muslim brotherhood – an outcome undesirable to Christians and secularists.
