Judge Mohamed Abdel-Mohsen was elected Friday as the new head of Egypt’s prestigious Judges’ Club, snatching the seat from eight other contenders.

Abdel-Mohsen is the deputy head of the Court of Cassation. He was running on top of the youths’ electoral list.

The Judges Club is an unofficial, powerful body that represents over 90 percent of Egypt's judges.

A total of 84 judges were also competing for 16 posts on the club’s high board.

The elections were decided after a court order in June ruled that the election by-laws of the club, put into place by sacked Justice Minister Ahmed El-Zend, were void.
