"Through its Freedom and Justice Party, the Muslim Brotherhood emerged as the largest bloc following a November 28 vote -- the first election since the ousting of former President Hosni Mubarak on February 11, and the first free election in Egypt in more than 80 years. Additional parliamentary elections will be held through March. Observers of Egyptian politics will keep an eye on what this fundamentalist surge portends for the country’s cultural and secular institutions, including the renowned Library of Alexandria."
