Egyptian presidential elections a success
NBC News — Egypt's historic presidential elections are being called a success. First round voting ended thursday, and an early vote count shows a Muslim Brotherhood candidate with a very small lead.
This is the first time Egyptians are voting for a president since Hosni Mubarak was ousted from power last year. Egypt's 50 million eligible voters turned out in force to determine who will lead the country. None of the 12 candidates are expected to secure more than half the votes to win outright in the first round, a run-off between the top two vote getters is expected in June.
