A physicist, Dr. Mohamed Salahuddin El Naschie, a likely candidate for the presidency, held a press conference Thursday, Marriott Hotel at six pm, the official announcement of his candidacy for the presidency.

During the conference he discussed a number of issues, including: the implications of current events in Egypt, and the National Project for the Egyptian revolution, education and scientific research in Egypt, and economic development in Egypt, and routines-governmental organizations and the poor in Egypt.

Now Al Wafd has a similar report. Original Arabic or Google's English translation. Al Wafd says:

النشائى: سأكون أول المرشحين للرئاسة

قال الدكتور محمد النشائى – العالم والمرشح المحتمل لرئاسة الجمهورية- إن فتح باب الترشيح يوم 10 مارس 2012 لرئاسة الجمهورية يعد خطوة ربما تكون مخططا لها لكنه سيكون لها – بحسب وصفه – وأنه لن يتنازل عن ترشحه لرئاسة الجمهورية ، بل وسيكون أول المرشحين.

واضاف قائلا فى بيان له:" ان المصريين يعلمون جيدا ويفقهون جيدا كل شىء ولن أكون صفا ثانيا لأن أهل العلم لابد أن يكونوا فى المقدمة، واعداً جميع المصريين :"مازلت قادرا على الترشح لرئاسة الجمهورية ".

واعلن النشائى عن مؤتمر صحفى يوم الخميس القادم يعلن فيه عن خطته المستقبلية وسيعلق على مجريات الامور والأحداث الحالية فى مصر.

In English:

El Naschie: I'll be the first of the candidates for the presidency

Dr. Mohamed El Naschie - the scientist and a likely candidate for the presidency - said that opening nominations on March 10, 2012 for the presidency is the step that may be planned - according to the recipe - but he will not give up his candidacy for the presidency, in fact he will be the first of the candidates.

He said in a statement: "The Egyptians know and understand everything very well. I will not be second, because scholars must be at the forefront", promising all Egyptians: "I am still able to run for the presidency. "

El Naschie announced at a press conference on Thursday his plan for the future and commented on the outcome of matters and current events in Egypt.

El Naschie is only a make-believe scientist, so it is inadvisable for him to base his candidacy on that.

  1. Just asking in terms of parallel reality: who will be his science adviser? Otto or Ji-Huan? And such journals, as Nature, will be, of course, banned from libraries due to their heretic content. :D

  2. Hahaaa he can fill his entire cabinet with Brotherhood members and kook journal editors. He should appoint all of them immediately to show his shadow administration is ready to take office.

  3. And now Seventh Day has the story. They seem to be saying El Naschie will hold a news conference about his candidacy tomorrow, Thursday 8 February. Original Arabic or Google's English translation. We'll be monitoring developments.

  4. I don't understand what is meant by "official" announcement. The nomination will open (supposedly) on March 10. It seems to me that he did not have the media attention he hoped for the first time he said he's going to run for presidency, so he's just trying for another shot.
