The Misr al-Qawya (Strong Egypt) student movement launched a campaign under the slogan “In search for foothold” to collect signatures aiming to support the presidential candidate Khaled Ali ahead of elections in March.
“The movement organised numerous workshops in January that ended with summoning the general assembly on holding an internal vote calling on the Khalid Ali campaign to participate in collecting the signatures. The result ended with 69.3 percent approving while 30.7 percent were against,” said a statement released by the movement.
The statement added that the campaign will be launched in the universities to collect students’ signatures aiming to support Ali’s right to run for the presidential elections.
The students further clarified that they will release the final stance concerning the presidential elections after having collected signatures and after evaluating to which extent the electoral process is expected to be fair.
