Egypt president announcement delayed

By The Associated Press

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s elections authorities say announcement of the winner of Egypt’s presidential election will be delayed but gave no new date.

The Supreme Elections Commission says in a statement Wednesday that results won’t be announced on Thursday as scheduled because it is looking into complains presented by rival candidates.

A panel of judges has to look into some 400 complaints over voting submitted by both Ahmed Shafiq, ousted leader Hosni Mubarak’s prime minister, and the Muslim Brotehrhood’s candidate Mohammed Morsi’s campaign.
