Hamdeen Sabahi to run against Sisi



Hamdeen Sabahi has officially submitted his candidacy for the Egyptian presidential elections.

Mr Sabahi, is a left-winger who came third in the 2012 polls. He is now the only challenger to Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, former army chief.

Hamdeen Sabahi submitted the required documents to the election committee after gathering 31,100 signatures, his campaign said on Saturday.

25,000 is the required number of signatures, and Sisi has gathered 200,000 last week.

So far, given Sisi’s popularity it is only logical to predict his victory.

Nominations close on Sunday and so far, there are no other candidates.
