(LOS ANGELES TIMES) — REPORTING FROM CAIRO — The Muslim Brotherhood, expected to dominate the final round of Egyptian parliamentary elections, called Wednesday for unity with other political parties in ushering in a new political era to replace the police state of deposed President Hosni Mubarak.

Wednesday’s voting ended two days of balloting marking the first fully free and fair elections in Egypt since 1952. Official results will be announced next week.
