The Muslim Brotherhood called for a sit-in at Tahrir Square and other squares across the country to step up pressure against the military council as Egyptians await the result for the presidential elections which could come in a few days' time. The body overseeing Egypt's presidential election said it would not announce the results on Thursday as planned, saying it needed more time to study appeals from the candidates, but did not say when it might be ready, the state news agency reported [Reuters]
