CAIRO – 14 February 2018: The electoral program of Moussa Mostafa Moussa aims to support the national capitalism, said Moussa’s election campaign spokesperson Adel Esmat on Wednesday.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, Esmat stressed that the program aims to restore the state's role in changing the way of life in Egypt.
Moussa's national capitalism is based on stocks offering, forming partnerships between public and private sectors and expanding the youth’s ownership.
He asserted that the electoral program, prepared by experts and specified committees of al-Ghad Party, will pose the key ideas and new visions that would benefit all citizens and achieve a public interest to conclude the transitional stage of the June 30 Revolution.
Esmat further clarified that the party is still preparing a list for the campaigning committee that will be responsible for promoting Moussa's program and all organization activities nationwide during the upcoming days.
A few hours before the election candidacy closure, Al-Ghad party nominated Moussa to run for president and be a contender against President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.
