Nominations for the presidency

Egypt will open nominations for the presidency in mid-April and follow with a presidential vote in late June, according to a military official and political leader.

General Mohsen Fangary, a member of the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, said in a television interview that the nominations for the first presidential election since the end of Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year reign will open on April 15.

Last week, Sayed el-Badawi, the head of the conservative secular Wafd Party, said that political groups had decided to hold a presidential vote on June 20, roughly a month after a new, parliament-drafted constitution is brought to referendum.
