Egypt's historic presidential election - Comment

Millions of Egyptians queued at polling stations to cast their ballots in the country's first free presidential elections since the ouster of dictator Hosni Mubarak in a popular revolution last year. The attendance was particularly high in Cairo where long queues stretching outside the polling stations caused traffic jam. The first round of the presidential election in Egypt was held over two days on May 23 and 24, and a run-off would take place on June 16 and 17 if necessary. Final results are expected on June 21.
