Mohamed Morsy, Egyptian presidential candidate and President of the party Freedom and Justice Party (Muslim Brotherhood)  is considered one of the conservative voices within Egypt?s oldest Islamist organization.His power put him in confrontation with the group?s progressive youth on several occasions.Since Shater?s disqualification, the Muslim Brotherhood?s official discourse has portrayed Morsy as ?a politically savvy? candidate, ?a symbol of the revolution,? The group?s official discourse invokes Morsy?s parliamentarian background to prove his commitment to democracy, opposition to Mubarak?s regime and defense of Sharia. So far, Morsy's chances to survive the first phase seem slim.The 61-year-old engineer has failed to garner the support of various Islamist factions.
