CAIRO: Presidential candidate Hamdeen Sabbahi wrote early Thursday on his Twitter account that he welcomes former Minister of Defense Abdel Fatah al-Sisi’s decision to run for president.

Sisi announced late Wednesday on state television that he will run for president, after resigning from his ministerial position following a meeting with the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, attended by interim President Adly Mansour.

“We seek clean, clear and democratic elections that guarantee state neutrality and the Egyptian citizen’s right to choose their president with free will,” Sabbahi tweeted.

Registration for presidential candidates has not been opened yet. The exact date is expected to be announced by the Supreme Presidential Electoral Commission on Sunday.
