Shafiq's camp says its candidate is ahead in the presidential race “beyond all doubts”.
The campaign for Ahmed Shafiq, Hosni Mubarak's former prime minister, said on Monday its candidate was ahead in the presidential race “beyond all doubts” just hours after the Muslim Brotherhood had claimed its candidate, Mohammed Morsi, was ahead.
"The initial indications of the Ahmed Shafiq campaign prove beyond all doubt that he is ahead in the elections despite all the violations," a spokesman for his campaign said in a statement.
He said Shafiq had won between 51 per cent and 52 per cent of the vote.
