Mortada Mansour wins presidential elections of Zamalek club – Zamalek’s Website
CAIRO – 25 March 2018: The Egyptian Parliament announced Sunday that it rejected requests asking for the lifting of Zamalek SC President and MP Mortada Mansour’s immunity, for not meeting legal requirements.
The Legislative and Constitutional Affairs Committee of the Parliament rejected in a closed meeting Prosecutor General Nabil Sadek’s request to strip Mansour of his Parliamentarian immunity over a libel lawsuit filed by former Zamalek President Mamdouh Abbas against Mansour.
In a statement to Masrawy, Mansour thanked the members of the committee as they “have appreciated what he does and are aware of conspiracies carried out against him.”
The Committee also rejected to lift the immunity of MP Ahmed Mohamed Badran over a number of violations that have been recently reconciled, and that of MP Sayed Abdel-Al for not meeting legal requirements.
Deputy head of the committee Nabil al-Gamal said that the requests filed against the three MPs were rejected as they were “of a malicious character.”
On Jan. 13, Mansour had announced his intention to run for the presidency, telling TV host Ahmed Moussa on “Ala Mas’oliety” (On My Responsibility) talk show on Sada al-Balad satellite channel that he will collect signatures of Parliament members to back his nomination. However, he decided to withdraw a few days later.
