The Revolution Youth Coalition announced its endorsement of moderate Islamist Abdel-Moneim Abul-Fotouh for president Monday at a student conference organised by the latter in Alexandria.

A number of political groups that fall under the coalition's umbrella have already announced their backing for Abul-Fotouh, such as the Egyptian Current Party, the Masrena Movement (Our Egypt) and the Youth for Justice and Freedom movement.

Some major Salafist groups have also backed the ex-Muslim Brother for president over Mohamed Morsi, the Brotherhood's official candidate.
