Egypt's election commission says the ruling party has won a sweeping victory in parliamentary elections after the two main opposition groups quit the polls in protest of what they said was massive vote-rigging.
Final results after runoffs on Sunday gave President Hosni Mubarak's National Democratic Party 83 percent of the vote. If dozens of elected independents join the NDP, as is expected, the ruling party could end up in control of around 96 percent of the legislature.
Mubarak's government carried out a heavy crackdown on its main opponents in the fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood before the vote, rounding up 1,400 supporters. The Brotherhood decided to boycott the runoffs after if failed to win a single seat in the first round.
