Ahmed Shafik will be named Egypt's new president on Sunday, the semi-official news agency Al Ahram reported -CNN
This report was stated on the twitter account of Rodrigo, an employee of CNN Mexico. It is all I can find at this point so I guess we will have to wait and see.

The questions it brings up are, Does this mean a new Civil War in Egypt? With the past issues in Egypt and all the issues surrounding the elections, is it a possibility? Will the People simply accept it? and What does it mean for the rest of the World?
