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
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.
