Cairo, Egypt | March 29, 2012

Muslim Brotherhood dissident member and Presidential hopeful Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh held a press conference on Thursday, March 29, outside the headquarters of the Supreme Commission for Presidential Elections after he officially submitted his candidacy papers with about 40,000 signatures of supporters who gave him power-of-attorney to run for the post.

The motto of Aboul-Fotouh's presidential campaign is “Egypt, the Dignity”.
Aboul-Fotouh, who was dismissed from the Muslim Brotherhood for his announcement of running for president, said that Egypt would never be ruled by a pharaoh again, referring to former president Hosni Mubarak's longtime rule.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Presidential Candidate Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh:
"We do not say mere theoretical words. Our statements are based on experts and specialists, because Egypt will not be governed by a president who claims understanding of everything anymore. The role of Egypt's coming president will be mainly the preservation of national independency and the respect of specialists and experts in their fields, protecting them and pushing them for the service of this nation."

Aboul-Fotouh said that he would do his best to make Egypt a strong and free country, raise the people's standard of living and get the rights of revolution martyrs.

He warned against electoral fraud and vote buying in the upcoming presidential elections, scheduled for May 23 and 24, to ensure the new president reflects the free will of the people after January 25 Revolution.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Presidential Candidate Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh:
"Election of a new president is a national project that represents a crossroads for Egypt. The enemies of this revolution want to tamper with this project and trade with political money to buy the will of Egyptians. However, the dignity of Egyptians rejects selling their will for money."

Aboul-Fotouh, noted that his presidential program depends mainly on two parts which are education and medical care as it is the right of all Egyptians to enjoy proper education and healthcare, promising to work hard, if elected, to resolve the issue of unemployment from 15% to 6%.

He also touched on the security issue, saying that it is his main priorities to reform the Interior Ministry and to restore security.

Aboul-Fotouh, 61, a former Muslim Brotherhood Guidance Bureau member, was recently expelled from the Islamist group because of running for presidential elections as the group has committed to not fielding a candidate for the presidency and has forbidden its members from running independently.
