Mon, Feb. 19, 2018
CAIRO – 18 February 2018: Lawyer of presidential candidate Moussa Mostafa, Tarek al-Awady submitted to the Supreme Administrative Court a certificate confirming that Moussa holds a bachelor degree in engineering from France.

The certificate refers that Moussa has a bachelor degree in engineering from National Higher Architecture Institute in France, which is equivalent to Egyptian bachelor degree.

The Supreme Administrative Court adjourned on February 12 the case of presidential candidate Moussa in which he faces the risk of exclusion from the election race for not meeting the education eligibility standards.

Al-Awady impugned the validity of the candidacy of Al-Ghad (Tomorrow) party chairperson Moussa Moustafa Moussa before the Supreme administrative court on February 2, since he has not obtained a certified university or higher education degree, which is a key requirement for candidates running in the presidential election.

However, in the session on Monday February 12, the case was adjourned to February 17.

Deputy of State Lawsuits Authority Abdel Rahim Ali responded as the National Electoral Authority (NEA) representative in the court on Monday February 12 that the NEA confirmed from Mousa’s educational paper’s validity that he could run for presidency.
In statements to Egypt Today on February 2, lawyer Tarek al-Awady said that Mousa may not be running in the election over previous convictions and not meeting the education eligibility standards.

A few days earlier, Moussa announced that he obtained a foreign degree which has a value greater than any degree that can be obtained locally.

In his interview with the well-known anchor Wael el-Ebrashy for Al Ashera Masa’an (10 pm) TV program which airs daily on Dream TV, Mousa said that he holds an MA in architecture from a French university and said his degree has been already certified by the Foreign Ministry.
