Egyptian Elections: Update I

The Muslim Brotherhood and the Wafd have pulled out of the run-off election in Egypt, in protest of election fraud.  According to the BBC:
Following the first round, Egyptian media carried images and testimonies of mass faked ballots and voters being intimidated at polling stations.
The end result is that most of the seats in parliament will go to the National Democratic Party of Hosni Mubarak.  So much for democracy in Egypt.
