Abul-Fotouh and his campaign plan for a big rally for his supporters at Cairo stadium next Friday

Presidential candidate Abdel-Moneim Abul-Fotouh’s campaign has invited his supporters to a huge event called “Strong Egypt” that it will hold next Friday afternoon at Cairo Stadium.

The event, which takes its name from Abul-Fotouh’s presidential platform, will be attended by the presidential candidate and a number of the prominent public figures who have announced that they are supporting the moderate Islamist's presidential bid.
According to the campaign's official Facebook page, the event is designed to display the size of Abul-Fotouh’s support. The event will include a march to the stadium from Rabaa Al-Adawaya mosque, organised by the campaign and the Masrena movement.

Cairo International Stadium is the second largest stadium in the Arab world, with a seating capacity of 75,000.

Abul-Fotouh’s event comes after huge rallies were organised by the Muslim Brotherhood and Freedom and Justice Party to support their candidate Mohamed Morsi. Thousands of supporters attended the events in Mansoura, Alexandria and Giza in recent weeks.
