Eliminated presidential candidate and moderate Islamist figure Abdel-Moneim Abul-Fotouh will meet with Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki Friday evening, after accepting an invitation from the head of state.  

The gathering is expected to take place at the Egyptian Qubba presidential palace as part of Marzouki's Friday visit to Cairo.

Abul-Fotouh, the renegade Muslim Brotherhood leader, came in fourth place during the first voting round of Egypt’s post-Mubarak presidential elections in late May. He is currently in the process of establishing a political party "Strong Egypt."
