Gamal’s posters move to downtown Cairo

The Egyptian Association for Development and Human Rights launched a campaign in support of Gamal Mubarak, son of current president Hosni Mubarak, in next year’s presidential elections.

Campaigners put up huge posters of the younger Mubarak in downtown Cairo.

“We will support Gamal Mubarak for president if his father chooses not to run for another term next year,” said Ayman Taha, the association director. “But we will choose Hosni Mubarak if he decides to run.”  He also denied that the posters had anything to do with next month’s parliamentary elections.

Taha added that he obtained all necessary permits from the authorities before putting up the posters.

“We held a big celebration downtown for the launch of our campaign,” he said. “There was a very high attendance.”
