CAIRO: A campaign that urges Minister of Defense General Abdel Fatah al-Sisi to run for president in the upcoming elections held a press conference on Monday to announce its merger with four other campaigns that wish to achieve the same goal.
Kammel Gemilak, which translates to ‘finish your favor,’ was started in end of July as a way to prove to the world that the events that took place on June 30 were not a military coup, according to the campaign’s Facebook page.
Speaking at the press conference, former Parliamentary Mohamed Abou Hamed stated that this conference is the beginning for a wide campaign to support Sisi for presidency, adding that a real leader does not impose himself on Egyptians but is rather chosen to lead.
While Journalist Mostafa Bakri, also speaking at the conference, said, “Sisi is the most cautious over a nation that has been torn apart by conspiracy theories.”
Khaled al-Adawy, the general coordinator of the campaign, threatened to organize protests in Tahrir Square, Itihadeya and other squares in Egypt should the general refuse to run for presidency.
