Cairo: Egypt`s ruling National Democratic
Party will nominate incumbent Hosni Mubarak to re-run in the
Presidential poll scheduled for next year, a top party leader
has said.

NDP Secretary General Safwat el-Sherif has said that
citizens` participation in the elections is the real guarantee
of fairness in the vote and asked all Egyptians to cast ballot
in the forthcoming poll.

El-Sherif said all guarantees of fairness and
transparency will be ensured in the presidential elections.

"The elections will be monitored by the higher
election committee, which is formed of a number of senior
judges," he said, adding, "This committee will set all
regulations for nomination, announce the date for
nomination...and set the conditions for campaigning."

No one will match Mubarak`s leadership, wisdom and
influence, El-Sherif said.

Mubarak is yet to publicly state whether he would run.
