Al-Fiqqi nomination stands, says Arab League representative

Egyptian Arab League Permanent Representative Afifi Abdel Wahab on Wednesday said that the Foreign Ministry does not intend to withdraw Mostafa al-Fiqqi's nomination for secretary general of the league. He would be succeeding Amr Moussa in the position.

“We received letters from various Arab countries supporting the nomination,” he said, calling on those who reject the nomination to hold a dialogue with al-Fiqqi in order to resolve any misunderstanding.

Political forces on Wednesday staged a vigil before the Arab League headquarters in Cairo, protesting the nomination on the grounds that al-Fiqqi was a leading member of the former ruling National Democratic Party.
