CAIRO: Former presidential candidate Ahmed Shafiq’s lawyer Shawqy al-Sayed said that Shafiq’s appeal on the 2012 presidential elections is ongoing, but if election fraud is proven, Shafiq would still not be the president.
During a call with Al-Kahera Wal Nas on Friday, Sayed added that the case was filed during the rule of ousted President Mohamed Morsi, but the verdict session has not yet been determined.
Sayed said it would be hard for Shafiq to be president, even if the verdict was in favor of him against Morsi, because of the events of June 30.
The invalidation of the elections could only be issued by the presidential Supreme Electoral Committee, he said, demanding the committee reveal the truth to the people.
