Abstract
The article investigates the electoral preferences and electoral activity in the provinces of Egypt. The results of the referendums on the Egyptian constitution in 2012 and 2014 and presidential elections in 2012 are also analyzed. The «Index of positions power of the Muslim Brotherhood» developed by the authors is presented.The real level of support of the «Brothers» and the military in the provinces of Egypt is revealed. On this basis it has become possible to identify those regions which are sympathetic to the Islamists (the northern part of Middle Egypt), the regions which give preference to the Army (Delta, Port Said and South Sinai) and those which are characterized by a high level of political passivity (Upper Egypt).
