CAIRO – 1 December 2017: “To build it” campaign, in cooperation with Nation’s Future party, has arranged to send on Friday medical and food convoys in Halayeb, Shalatin and Abu Ramad of the Red Sea Governorate.
This convoy included doctors of different medical specialties such as pediatricians, family planning, and obstetrics, and they have already seen a large turnout of citizens.
“Alashan Tbneeha” (To Build It) is a public campaign that kicked off on September to demand a second inauguration of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi as president of Egypt. The campaign’s hashtag went viral on Twitter, having amassed at least 60,000 tweets.
The main reasons behind supporting Sisi for another term boil down to the continuation of the mega projects, development of the country’s infrastructure, preservation of national security, enhancement of education systems and counterterrorism.
The campaign succeeded in collecting a large amount of signatures from public figures, politicians and parliamentarians, who constitute a big portion of the campaign members.
Some parliamentarians have started to contact Egyptian expat groups who already knew about the campaign from the Facebook page, so that they would print out a pro-Sisi petition.
Launching last month, the campaign affirmed that it does not follow any political party or governmental entity.
Abdel Fatah al-Sisi is the sixth president of Egypt. He came to office on June 2014 after the revolution of June 30, which toppled former President Mohammed Morsi, who is affiliated with the now-banned Muslim Brotherhood.
