Muhammad Hamid won in the run-offs and is now the representative of Qasr al-Eini district (which includes Tahrir Square). This does not come as a surprise as one would expect that the votes that went to Gameela Ismail (3rd place) would then go to him. Even though Gameela Ismail denounced Muhammad Hamid, this still seems to be what happened. Muhammad Hamid: trusted by a small minority, elected by the majority. A prototype to be reckoned with. Here is a quick interview with Hamid right after he learned that he won.
