Results from Cairo are finally in giving Shafiq a solid lead in the capital with 57.7 per cent of the vote compared to rival Morsi's 42.3 per cent.

However, the Cairo initial tallies will not be enough to put Shafiq ahead of Morsi after votes have been reported in 27 governorates.

If these results stand, Muslim Brotherhood contender Morsi will have won Egypt's first post-uprising elections with 51.89 per cent of the vote, succeeding toppled strongman Hosni Mubarak.
