Judges for Egypt is made up of roughly 300 judges and led by Zakaria Abdel Aziz, the former president of the Judges' Club.
The reformist Judges for Egypt movement has announced that according to its vote count, Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi has won the presidential runoff. A quick scan of the results posted on the movement's website shows that their numbers match exactly the nationwide results released yesterday by Morsi's campaign. Morsi's campaign said its results were based on tallies signed and approved by election commission judicial observers at the district level in each of the country's 27 governorates, and proved photocopies of the signed documents as proof.
Judges for Egypt is made up of roughly 300 judges and led by Zakaria Abdel Aziz, the former president of the Judges' Club, the judiciary's official syndicate. Though Judges for Egypt states its mission is to assist the Supreme Presidential Election Commission, Abdel Aziz has been harshly critical of how the elections have been run and has criticised the commission for not being transparent about possible violations and its counting process.
Both Morsi and opponent Ahmed Shafik have submitted complaints to the commission in an attempt to disqualify votes, and the final results will not be announced until Thursday, at the earliest.
