(NEW YORK, N.Y.)-- On Sunday the results of the Egyptian presidential run-off will be announced, the BBC reports.
Presidential candidates Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq and Mohammed Mursi had both considered appealing because the two have claimed victory and say they will appoint unity governments.
The country has been deeply polarized over this issue. Supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood have demanded the outcome of the Presidential results and had a vigil in Tahir Square to condemn Egypt's rulers to seize sweeping powers.
Last week, the military dissolved the Parliament and claimed the power of the Legislature. Activist Wael Ghoneim, who was influential in the January 2011 revolution against Hosni Mubarak, has been providing support for Mursi. Although Shafiq came in second to Mursi in last month's round, he publicly announced that he was the true victor. In addition, opponents of the brotherhood are in dispute of the claim that Mursi won the run-off.
