Abu Ismail rejects ‘consensus’ presidential candidate

Presidential hopeful Hazem Abu Ismail has rejected a proposal to field a “consensus” candidate who would be approved by the various political parties and forces in the presidential election. 

“This is a plot to scatter votes in favor of the candidate who is supported by the army,” he said.

“Such candidate must not necessarily have a vision as long as he is favored by both the army and the Islamists,” he added.

“That would be a big mistake that would affect the future generations.”

Neither the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces nor various political forces have confirmed the so-called "consensus candidate" idea. Individual presidential candidates have rejected it categorically.
