Egypt presidential elections (round #1): A visual breakdown of who voted for who and where

Combined opposition votes outstrip those of ex-regime figures
Hometown support is vital. Sabbahi and Shafiq won over 60 and 50% in their birthplaces
Cairo is the governorate with the largest amount of non-Islamist voters, Alexandria is next
Brotherhood needs 'revolutionary' vote to beat Mubarak-era figure in runoff
Voters are overwhelmingly concentrated in the Greater Cairo and Delta governorates
Over a third of Islamist's votes were in four governorates
Over quarter of former PM support was in Cairo and home province of Sharqiya
The Greater Cairo area gave the Nasserist over 30 per cent of his votes
Cairo, Alexandria and Giza gave ex-Brother over one third of his total
Four zones gave Moussa 40 per cent of his votes, but he was popular in smaller regions too
Overall winners per governorate - largest ones have low pop. density
Top two candidates have around only a quarter of overall votes

Delta for Shafiq, Upper Egypt for Morsi and the Mediterranean coast for Sabbahi - Ahram Online's maps and charts demonstrate which regions favoured which of the top five finalists


Ahram Online presents a detailed visual breakdown of the results from Egypt's first free presidential elections.
