On Friday morning, presidential frontrunner Ahmed Shafiq expressed his gratitude to all voters who chose him over the course of two days of voting in the first post-Mubarak presidential elections.
On his official Facebook page, Shafiq also promised that if he wins he will ensure that Egyptians live in a climate of freedom.
"To the generous people of Egypt, justice is the rule of law," Shafiq said.
"All thanks and appreciation for your efforts in supporting me as a candidate," he continued.
The administrator of Shafiq's page also directed a few words to rival presidential candidate Hamdeen Sabbahi.
"The Shafiq campaign salutes the honourable Sabbahi, and God bless him. If he wins we will not be upset because he is a patriotic man."
