Voting is underway in Egypt's third and final stage of elections after the ouster of long-time dictator Hosni Mubarak.
Some 14 million voters are casting ballots in 27 provinces over the next two days to elect 150 members of parliament.
The Muslim Brotherhood is expected to win the majority of seats in the 498-member lower house.
The Islamist party is already the country's most influential group. It's leaders are saying they will not recognize Israel "under any circumstance."
"The Brotherhood respects international conventions, but we will take legal action against the peace treaty with the Zionist entity," the party's deputy leader said during a recent interview.
Other liberal and secular groups that led the uprising that forced Mubarak from power have performed poorly in the staggered elections, which began Nov. 28.
