Most of the votes have been counted.

And it looks like Egyptians will choose in June between a man jailed by Hosni Mubarak, and one of the former leader's prime ministers.

The Muslim Brotherhood is pitching its candidate, Mohammed Morsi, as a guardian of the revolution.

And its urging other candidates to join a reformist coalition.

Morsi was jailed for seven months under former president Mubarak.

Now, unofficial results give him a quarter of the vote.

But Ahmed Shafiq - who was prime minister while Morsi was in prison - also has a lot of support.

As a former air force commander, he is a military man who has emphasised his political experience.
