New poll keeps Moussa ahead
Trying to predict the outcome of these elections has been nearly impossible, with different polls showing different results.
However the latest latest Al-Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies survey, in conjunction with the Egpyt Independent, has put former Arab League chief Amr Moussa clear of his rivals.
Moussa still tops the chart with the support of 40.8 percent of poll participants, followed by former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafik, who climbed to 19.9 percent.
Former Muslim Brotherhood member Abdel Moneim Abul-Fotouh fell back to third on 17.8 percent while Muslim Brotherhood nominee Mohammed Mursi was remained fourth with 9.4 percent.
A result like that would put Moussa and Shafik into a run-off, while Abul-Fotouh and Mursi would be disqualified. It would be a pretty significant shock to have no Islamists in the final run-off, particularly considering their dominance over parliament, but this is just one poll.
