CAIRO: On the first day of the presidential elections on May 26, five were injured, among clashes that took place between security forces and dozens of Muslim Brotherhood members in Mansoura, Sky News Arabia reported Monday.

The Muslim Brotherhood announced before the elections that they would stage marches on the days of the presidential elections.

Magdy Qorqor, leader of the National Coalition to Supporting Legitimacy, which is against the June 30 Demonstrations, told The Cairo Post Monday that they will stage marches Monday but away from polling stations to express their rejection to the elections.

Egypt witnessed the second presidential elections after the ousting of President Mohamed Morsi on July 3 by the Egyptian military in a response to the millions who demonstrated, demanding the toppling of Morsi after his constitutional declaration to extending his rule.

The upcoming president is supposed to be the second president to Egypt after January 25 Revolution, which was against the dictatorship of former President Hosni Mubarak.
