‘Egypt is calling you’: New pro-Gamal Mubarak campaign

Another signature-gathering campaign was launched a few days ago in Nubia to support Gamal Mubarak, son of President Hosni Mubarak, in standing for the presidency.

The campaign, with the slogan “Egypt is calling you,” is being led by Ebeida Mohamed Ahmed, member of the National Democratic Party in Aswan.

The number of signatures has so far reached 200. The campaign slogan was chosen in response to the anti-Gamal “Egypt is larger than you” campaign, according to Ebeida.

Thousands of pro-Gamal posters have been printed, to be distributed next week in Aswan and then other governorates.

In a related context, around 20 lawyers filed a report with the attorney general against Ayman Nour, founder of Ghad Party, accusing him of inciting hatred for Gamal and depriving him of his constitutional right to stand in presidential elections.

“It’s an honor for me to call on citizens not to elect Gamal Mubarak,” said Nour

Meanwhile, a human rights association in Daqahliya submitted a report to Ahmed Nazif, Egypt's prime minister, to take action against any candidates, regardless of party affiliation, who deface walls with posters.

Nevine al-Deeb, coordinator for the pro-Gamal Mubarak coalition campaign founded by Magdi al-Kurdi, said their coalition had 20,000 posters printed in two days, but that such posters do not affect the general look of streets.
