Former Egyptian prime minister Ahmed Shafiq, who returned to Egypt on Saturday after a five-year absence, said on Sunday that being in the country allows him to assess whether he should run in Egypt's 2018 presidential election Shafiq made the comment in a phone call with TV presenter Wael El-Ebrashy on the privately owned Dream channel, adding that he has enjoyed full freedom of movement since arriving in Cairo. Shafiq flew to Cairo from the United Arab Emirates by private jet on Saturday evening. He was met at the airport by members of his family and checked into a hotel in Cairo, pending the completion of work on his private residence in the city. Earlier on Saturday evening, Wamnews, the UAE's official news agency, reported that Shafiq's family is still resident in the Emirates and being cared for by the state. In a statement issued from the UAE on Wednesday, Shafiq said that he plans to run in the upcoming presidential election in Egypt, which is expected to be held in the spring of 2018. The 76-year-old Shafiq served as aviation minister under former president Hosni Mubarak and briefly as prime minister during the 2011 uprising, before he was replaced in February 2012. Shafiq narrowly lost the June 2012 presidential election to the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi, who held the post for one year before being ousted in July 2013 following nationwide protests against his rule. Shortly after the 2012 election, Shafiq claimed that the vote was rigged and travelled to the UAE, citing "concerns for his own safety." While in the UAE, Shafiq was tried in absentia on a number of corruption charges, but was either acquitted or had charges against him dropped. More»

Egypt’s former Prime Minister and presidential potentate Ahmed Shafiq is facing charges of violating building regulations and will be investigated on the matter within the coming hours, state-run Akhbar Al-Youm indicated on Sunday. The newspaper, quoting high-level officials on condition of anonymity, said that the legal case is related to apartments and buildings linked to his daughters, which allegedly were built in violation of building codes. Meanwhile, lawyer Dina Adly who is Shafiq’s legal representative, released on Sunday a statement on her Facebook page in which she asserted that she has no information on Shafiq’s current location. The statement came in the wake of her previous media statements in which she noted that her client had forcibly been deported from his residence in the United Arab Emirates to Egypt after he unveiled his intent to run for the upcoming presidential elections. In the most recent statement, she detailed the circumstances that preceded his arrival to Cairo. “After Shafiq’s declaration of his intent to run for the 2018 presidential elections, he said that he will leave for France. UAE officials informed him that a private airplane will transport him to France, but he preferred to book a flight leaving to France on Saturday at dawn. His daughters were shocked as numerous officials informed Shafiq that he is considered persona non grata in UAE,” Adly noted. She explained that these “officials” informed him that he must leave the UAE without his daughters while they told his daughters that they are welcome to stay in the UAE. “I really do not have any information on Shafiq’s current whereabouts in Egypt, he did not call me, therefore I call on the Egyptian authorities as Shafiq’s official lawyer to enable me to meet him and prove that he has arrived in Egypt” she stressed.

Former Egyptian Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq, a former air force pilot and ex-presidential candidate, told Reuters on Wednesday he intended to run in the presidential election early next year, saying he would return to Egypt in the “coming days”. In a video declaration sent to Reuters and a telephone statement, Shafiq said he would run in the election planned for around April, when President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is widely expected to seek a second term. “I‘m honoured to announce my will to run in the upcoming presidential elections in Egypt as a choice to be president of the country for the next four years,” he said in the statement from the United Arab Emirates in which he highlights his experience in the air force. Shafiq would be one of the few candidates who have announced their intentions for 2018. He lost against Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood in the first election after Egypt’s 2011 uprising against former leader Hosni Mubarak. Sisi, who as a military commander led the army’s ousting of Mursi in 2013 before his own landslide election a year later, has yet to announce whether he will run again. He says he will follow the will of the people. His supporters see Sisi as key to stability following the upheaval that followed the 2011 revolt. His government is fighting a stubborn Islamist militancy in the North Sinai and has also enacted painful austerity reforms over the last year that critics say have dented his popularity. After his defeat Shafiq fled overseas. He formed a political party and led it from abroad. The party failed to make significant gains during a 2015 parliamentary election. Shafiq had faced various corruption charges but was either acquitted or had cases against him dropped in most instances. A year ago, his lawyer said he was removed from airport watchlists, clearing his way to return home. More»

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Wednesday ordered the Egyptian army and police forces to restore stability and security in the Sinai Peninsula within three months using "utmost force." The president's command came during his speech at a public celebration of the Prophet Muhammad's birth (Moulid El-Nabi) at Al-Azhar's conference center in Cairo. The event was attended by tens of Azhar clerics and public officials and including Minister of Religious Endowments Mohamed Mokhtar Gomaa, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar Ahmed El-Tayyeb, Minister of Interior Magdy Abdel-Ghaffar, and the newly appointed Army Chief of Staff, Mohamed Farid Hegazi. “I hold Lieutenant General Hegazy, along with the ministry of interior, responsible for restoring stability and security in Sinai within three months," El-Sisi said, directly addressing the general, who stood at military attention. Sisi stressed that the army and the police adhere to this directive. Wednesday's orders are the Egyptian president's second public directive to security forces to use  "utmost force" in counterterrorism operations since the deadly terror attack on Al-Rawda Mosque in North Sinai last Friday, which left 310 dead and tens injured. Last Friday, hours after the massacre, El-Sisi gave a speech saying that the military and police will avenge the martyrs and respond using utmost force against terrorists to ensure stability and security. The president also declared three days of national mourning for the victims of the attack. The Egyptian armed forces and air force have launched several strikes against terror hideouts in North Sinai after Al-Rawda massacre. The Egyptian army and police have been battling an Islamic militant insurgency in North Sinai in the past several years. Ansar Beit Al-Maqdis, which is affiliated to the terror group Daesh, has been carrying out deadly attacks against security forces. However, the army and police have killed many members of the group. The president noted in his speech today that this year's anniversary of the Prophet's birthday, which is normally a joyous occasion, comes following a devastating attack devoid of any human or moral principles. “What kind of Islam do these terrorists claim to belong to when they kill children and elderly people, depriving them of their right to live?" he said, describing the attack as "cowardly." “Egypt is facing a war that seeks to destroy the state and prevent its stability, and some forces assist terrorists with arms to undermine its role," the Egyptian president added. El-Sisi highlighted high economic growth rates and development efforts in all sectors despite the financial cost of the state's war against terrorism over the past four years. On Sunday Mohamed El-Ashmawy, the executive director of the Long Live Egypt Fund, announced that the North Sinai town of Bir Al-Abd, where the mosque attack took place, would receive a total of EGP 400 million towards local services and development projects. “I assure you that we are determined to make Bir El-Abd a city referred to as a model of prosperity and development," Sisi pledged.
