The campaign of presidential hopeful Mohamed Morsi aims to enter the Guinness Book of World Records by creating the longest human chain in the world.

The chain will be held on Thursday and extend from Aswan to Alexandria. It will connect Cairo to Alexandria through the Agricultural Road highway.

According to Ahmed Abdel Aty, the general coordinator of Morsi's campaign, the chain will snake through the cities and capitals of Egypt's various governorates.

Since Morsi's campaign he has been welcomed with much fanfare in Egypt's governorates. In the province of Gharbiya, Morsi's supporters held a 15 mile long human chain to welcome him.

The distance between Alexandria and Aswan is more than 1000 kilometres.

Morsi is the Muslim Brotherhood's presidential candidate and the president of its political wing, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP).

On Wednesday he will visit the Smart village in Sixth October City before heading to Fayoum to hold a public rally
