Presidential candidate and former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq (R) attends a news conference in Cairo May 26, 2012. The Muslim Brotherhood and a military man identified with the police state of the ousted Hosni Mubarak courted defeated first-round candidates in Egypt's presidential election on Saturday, each trying to claim the mantle of the revolution for a runoff next month. State media named the Brotherhood's Mohamed Mursi and Shafiq as the top two vote-getters in this week's first round of a close-fought election made possible by last year's popular revolt.
