The presidential campaign of the Abdel Moneim Aboul-Fotouh said some of its members were assaulted by campaigners of candidate Ahmed Shafiq Tuesday. The latter refuted the allegations.

In a press release, Abul-Fotouh’s campaign said, “The supporters of candidate Ahmed Shafiq in the Dakahlia Governorate beat some of the volunteers of Abul-Fotouh’s campaign, tore some of their banners and also threatened to kill them if they kept promoting [Aboul-Fotouh].”

On the other hand, Mohamed Kotri, the general coordinator of Shafiq’s presidential campaign, categorically denied the accusations, accusing Abul-Fotouh’s campaign of the very same charges.

“Actually, it’s them who tear the posters of Ahmed Shafiq or cover them with Abul-Fotouh’s placards,” he said.

Polling of the presidential elections’ first round in Egypt is set to get underway 23 May. Contenders must stop their electoral campaigns 48 hours ahead of the poll.
