Three-hundred-and-forty-two winners in Egypt's parliamentary elections have been officially named as members of parliament.

The "For the Love of Egypt" electoral list grabbed all 120 party-based list seats.

Another 222 candidates have won individual seats so far in the first stage and the ongoing second stage, according to Ahram Online estimations.

The runoffs for the second stage will take place for Egyptians abroad on 30 November and 1 December, and for resident Egyptians on 1-2 December.

A total of 426 candidates are contesting 213 individual seats; 239 of those are running as independents and the remaining 187 are party affiliated.

The runoffs are taking place in 13 governorates, including Cairo, Qalioubiya, Daqahliya, Menoufiya, North Sinai and South Sinai.

The first phase of the elections took place in October in 14 governorates including Giza, Alexandria, Minya, Sohag and the Red Sea.

The Free Egyptians Party, founded by business tycoon Naguib Sawiris, has the highest number of candidates competing in the coming runoffs with 45 hopefuls, followed by the Wafd Party, Egypt's oldest liberal party, with 43 candidates, while the newly established Future of the Homeland party with 42 ‎candidates. The Salafist Nour Party, which is facing an electoral meltdown compared to its performance in the 2011 elections, has eight candidates in the round.

There are 62 candidates for individual seats representing other parties, including the Protectors of the Homeland Party, which has three candidates in the runoffs, and the Conference Party, founded by former foreign secretary Amr Moussa, which has two.

Some offshoots of the former ruling National Democratic Party also managed to ‎make it to the runoffs. Some prominent independent candidates also made it to the runoffs, including Mortada Mansour, a controversial lawyer and chairman of Cairo's Zamalek Club, who is representing the Free Egyptians Party, as well as Tawfik Okasha, a controversial TV host, who is running without party affiliation.

Eight candidates out of nine who secured individual seats in the first leg of the second stage were independents, while the remaining one is a member of the Wafd Party.

The For the Love of Egypt list won all 60 party-list seats available in the second stage, after contesting the 45 seats in the Cairo, South and Middle Delta constituency and the 15 seats in East Delta.

The pro-Sisi list is led by some former state officials including Major General Sameh Seif El-Yazal, a former military intelligence officer, and Mohamed El-Orabi, a former foreign minister, as well as Osama Heikal, a former information minister.

According to the High Elections Committee, the turnout in the first round of the second stage of the polls was 29.83 percent, compared to a total turnout of 26.5 percent in the first stage.

The HEC will announce the final results on 4 December.

George, no disagreement
In a country of 90 m people plus the millions living abroad there are many competent people to run for office, including the office of the president. The sad reality is these competent Egyptians are "discouraged" from serving. Someone like Mohamed El-Erian would make a great president or PM to rescue Egypt from the Economic collapse this incompetent government is presiding on!

NOT ALL Egyptians are BAD!
It is rather illogical to argue that ALL Egyptians who would like to serve their country in the Government and its institutions, such as the Military and the Police - are ALL bad in a country of 90+ million people.
