And here is the way I saw the elections

Place Tahrir was full of people favorable to Morsi. The results were to be announced and Shafik was very close to winning. The military were to make the announcement.

Imagine the scenario had they say it was Shafik. They would have had a revolution on their hands, So to satisfy the public, irrelevant of what the real numbers were, they nominated Morsi as the winner. The people were happy and now the military will continue life as if nothing happened.

Democracy in Egypt ? Keep dreaming, not in Egypt and not in any other arab state. Democracy is against Islam

Fine analysis for why Morsi "won" the elections.
