Wafd Party support for Sabbahi presidency bid ‘difficult’
Hamdeen Sabbahi - YOUM7/Osama Mohamed

CAIRO: Hamdeen Sabbahi is a “respectful potential candidate but his concepts and ideas make it difficult for the Wafd Party to support him,” Hossam al-Kholy, assistant secretary of the party, told Youm7 Tuesday.

He claimed that not all Leftist currents would support Sabbahi, as some would support Abdel Fatah al-Sisi if he decides to run for president, adding that the party had not yet decided on who would receive its backing.

Kholy said the party welcomes initiatives by presidential candidates to present their electoral programs to the supreme authority of the party.
