The Muslim Brotherhood's presidential candidate Mohamed Morsi continues his campaign tour by visiting Fayoum and Beni Suef on Wednesday; Brotherhood's guide Badie urges people to chose a candidate 'like Morsi'

The Muslim Brotherhood's presidential hopeful Mohamed Morsi continued his campaign run by visiting the governorates of Beni Suef and Fayoum on Wednesday.

Morsi was accompanied on his tour by Salafist figures Sheikh Mohamed Abdel-Maqsoud as well as Islamic scholar Safwat Hegazi and the Brotherhood's Supreme Guide Mohamed Badie.

Badie told the audience in Beni Suef that the revolution was a gift from God and the Egyptian people should pray and thank him for it. He also urged the Egyptian people to work hard and serve Egypt and choose a man who will apply Sharia Law like Morsi promised to do.

Morsi will continue on the campaign trail and head to the governorate of Behaira on Thursday. His supporters are also expected to hold the longest human chain in history, extending between Alexandria and Aswan in support of him.
