Abstract AR

نقوم في ھذه الورقة بدراسة تجریبیة لنتائج التصویت في الانتخابات الرئاسیة بعد الثورة الأولى في مصر.

في ضوء نجاح قوي من المرشح الإسلامي محمد مرسي، نقوم بتحدید الأبعاد الثلاثة التي یمكن أن تؤثر على نتائج التصویت : مخزون رأس المال البشري و الثروة و ھیكل العمالة.

نجد أن الفئة الأقل تعلیما و المناطق الأكثر فقرا و الغیر متكافئة كانت ذات دعم أكثر للإسلامیین.

نقوم أیضا آثار لھیكل العمالة في كل منطقة على نتائج التصویت.

نقوم باختبار النتائج من خلال مقارنة نتائج التصویت في انتخابات الرئاسة لتلك الخاصة بالاستفتاء على الدستور لعامى 2011 و 2012.

Abstract EN

This paper empirically studies the voting outcomes of the first post-revolution presidential elections in Egypt.

In light of the strong success of Islamist candidate Mohamed Morsi, I identify three dimensions which can affect voting outcomes: human capital stock, wealth and employment structure.

I find that less educated, poorer and more unequal districts support more Islamists.

I also find an effect of the employment structure of a district on voting.

I test the results by comparing the voting outcomes of the presidential elections to those of the 2011 and 2012 constitutional referendum.
