The Egyptian election results have been held from being released because of dissent and appeals from both candidates, each of whom claimed to have won the election. The election council said they wouldn’t release the results for a few days. To read more about the Egyptian elections, visit our Reuters News website.

Don’t forget to join us for a special event at the London office of Thomson Reuters as we peer inside the engine room of the Egyptian Revolution with the help of some of those most closely involved. And with the Arab world in ferment, we ask where the road from Tahrir Square will lead.
Details for the event are available here.
In the space of 18 days in January and February, the people of Egypt overthrew the 30-year rule of President Hosni Mubarak in a peaceful uprising that transfixed the world, and whose consequences are still reverberating. Behind this revolution was a group of young activists with the courage, tactical skill and mastery of 21st century social media to mobilize a whole society in opposition to an authoritarian ruler.
Our Foundation is organizing a special event on June 8th at our London office to take an inside look at the Egyptian Revolution with the help of some of those most closely involved. And with the Arab world in ferment, we ask where the road from Tahrir Square will lead.
Date: Wednesday 8th June at 6.30pm BST
