The results of Egypt's contentious presidential election will not be announced Thursday as originally planned, the country's Supreme Elections Commission ruled Wednesday. The release of the official vote tally was delayed after some 400 complaints were submitted by rival candidates Ahmed Shafiq, the former prime minister under ousted dictator Hosni Mubarak, and the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Morsi. Both camps have declared their candidate the victor. No date was given for when the results will be officially announced.
