Two main Islamic parties in Egypt have announced wining over 60 percent of the vote in the final stage of the parliamentary elections.

The Freedom and Justice Party of the Muslim Brotherhood said on Saturday that it had garnered 35.2 percent of the party list vote. The al-Nur party also said it received 27 percent.

The two Islamic parties took 65 percent of the vote in the first two phases of Egypt's first general election since the ouster of former President Hosni Mubarak in February.

Egyptians went to the polls in three stages to choose a new parliament tasked with drafting a new constitution.

Once the new parliament has been sworn in, a commission will be appointed to draft a new constitution before presidential election is held by the end of June.

The elections came in response to increasing public demand for a shift from military rule to a civilian government.
