CAIRO: Mohamed Kamal, a member of the April 6 Youth Movement political bureau and Revolutionaries Front coordinator, told Youm7 Friday that the front still has not chosen to support a presidential candidate.

The Cairo Court for Urgent Matters issued a verdict at the end of April banning the leftist April 6 movement, which was highly active in the January 25 Revolution that toppled former President Hosni Mubarak. But, this didn’t stop the group from organizing a press conference Wednesday to announce its final decision concerning the elections, ElBadil reported.

Kamal added that the front will not obligate any of its participants to vote a certain way. Regarding the 2013 Protest Law, he said that the front is studying a plan to confront the legislation.

Mohamed Youssef, a member in the political bureau said during the conference that electing Abdel Fatah al-Sisi will regenerate the Hosni Mubarak regime. He also added that the movement rejected Sisi, but was divided over supporting presidential candidate Hamdeen Sabbahi.

The movement also said it will launch a campaign entitled “Against” aimed at isolating what they described as “feloul” or former Mubarak regime members and supporters Masrawy reported. The movement added that it also aims to isolate Muslim Brotherhood members from political life.
