NBC News — The celebrations continue in Egypt following the release of the results from the nation's historic presidential election. Following a highly criticized delay, Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammed Morsi was declared the winner. His supporters remained camped out in Cairo's Tahrir Square overnight to celebrate the victory.
Morsi now faces a struggle for power with the country's still dominant military rulers. Last week the interim military government announced sweeping changes to the office of the president, removing several key powers. Morsi is scheduled to meet with military rulers soon to discuss a handover of power.
