Presidential elections are being held in Egypt between 26th and 28th of May 2014. Only two candidates are in the run: former army general Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and left wing candidate Hamdeen Sabahi.

Hamdeen Sabbahi’s campaign was not only underfunded but faced an uphill battle against the heavy favorite and former army chief, Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi. Despite the low numbers and resources, campaigners and supporters brought high levels of energy to Hamdeen’s events.

Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi's campaign was much better funded than Sabahi’s. The former general’s photos littered the city as campaigners and supporters sought to draw a connection between him, military presidents of the past, and patriotism.
