DHAKA: Egypt`s Muslim Brotherhood has called for talks to "save" the uprising ahead of a presidential election run-off.
The group says its candidate, Mohammed Mursi, won most votes in this week`s first round, with some 25% of the vote.
Partial figures suggest he will face Ahmed Shafiq, ex-President Mubarak`s last PM in a second round next month.
A spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood said Egypt would be "in danger" if Mr Shafiq won, and the group would reach out to other candidates to defeat him.
Mr Mursi has already invited other presidential candidates and party leaders to hold talks on Saturday, reports say.
Early counts in the country`s first free presidential elections put Mr Shafiq at roughly 24%.
The nationalist Hamdin Sabbahi, a fiery opponent of the Mubarak regime who became the choice of many of those supporting the revolution, appears to be in third place.
More than 11,000 out of 13,000 polling stations have declared results. However, partial results are subject to recounts and final results are due on 29 May.
No candidate appears close to reaching the 50% threshold necessary for an outright victory. The run-off is due on 16 and 17 June.
