Two Egyptian political parties – the socialist Tagamoa Party and the liberal Conference Party – have announced they will jointly back ex-army chief Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi's presidential bid

In a press conference on Sunday, head of the Conference (Moatamar) Party Mohamed El-Orabi said both groups will coordinate and launch pro-Sisi campaigns in parallel, reported Al-Ahram's Arabic news website.

El-Orabi said that more details on the alliance and the campaign will be revealed at a press conference on Monday in the Nile Delta governorate of Beheira.

The Conference Party was founded in 2012 by Amr Moussa – former presidential candidate and foreign minister under toppled leader Hosni Mubarak.

The Tagamoa Party was one of a handful of Egyptian political parties allowed to operate under Mubarak.

There is no liberal in Egypt
They are all worst than Taliban, not in religious way but the way in which they force their ideology on others.
