Leftist presidential hopeful Hamdeen Sabahi performed the Friday prayer at his birthplace, the coastal city of Baltim in the Nile Delta governorate of Kafr El-Sheikh, on Friday.

He is scheduled to attend a campaign rally in Alexandria on Friday afternoon, an hour away from Kafr El-Sheikh.

Sabahi is one of two candidates in presidential election, scheduled for 26-27 May. He is running against the former military chief, Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, who is widely expected to win.

The Nasserist candidate came in third in Egypt's 2012 presidential elections, garnering over 4.8 million votes.

The prominent politician spoke at an electoral rally in the Nile Delta governorate of Daqahliya on Thursday.

In an interview with satellite channel Sky News Arabia which aired on Thursday, Sabahi expressed his confidence in his chances of winning the vote.
