CAIRO: Kammel Gemeelak campaign founder Refaay Nasr Allah said Monday he expected Defense Minister Abdel Fatah al-Sisi to announce his candidacy for president “soon.”
Nasr Allah told Youm7 that they have a “full plan for the campaign” in the coming period despite Sisi’s position in the new government under Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab.
Interim President Adly Mansour assigned Mahlab, the former Minister of Housing, Feb. 25 to form the new government after Hazem al-Beblawy submitted his resignation.
Kammel Gemeelak, or “Fulfill your role”, is a petition campaign that was founded after June 30, that aims to encourage Sisi to run for presidential office. Although Mansour announced in late January that presidential elections would precede parliamentary ones, dates have not yet been set for either.
