As both candidates have claimed victory in the Egyptian presidential run-off, the last minute grab of political powers by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) caused widespread and heated reactions on social-networking sites.
Many Twitter users have commented on the first results of the presidential elections as well as on the new decree issued by Egypt's military rulers which grant SCAF near total autonomy in military matters and the ability to exercise a de facto veto over the drafting of a new constitution, thus leaving very limited powers to the new president.
Most of the reactions on Twitter concerned the new constitutional declaration issued by SCAF and how it made SCAF the true winner of the Egyptian presidential elections.
Others focused on the limited powers left to the incoming civilian president with the new constitutional declaration.
Twitter users have also commented on the possible victory of Morsi, which according to them will prompt people to leave the country or to renounce their citizenship. Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood claimed a victory for its candidate Mohammed Morsi on Monday, but his rival Ahmed Shafiq disputed the announcement and accused the Muslim Brotherhood of "deceiving the people" by declaring victory.
@lesbianpharoh was more optimistic saying that if Egyptians managed to oust former president Hosni Mubarak, they will succeed in getting rid of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces.
