Presidential candidate Fawzi Eissa has decided to withdraw from May's presidential election in favor of former Arab League chief Amr Moussa.
Eissa said, in a press conference with Moussa, that he decided to pull out from the approaching presidential race in favor of Moussa, who he argued, is keen on maintaining Egypt's interest consensually.
He added that he is honored to rally behind the liberal candidate whom he supports and shares visions with, reported the Middle East News Agency.
Eissa, who was endorsed by the Democratic Generation party, recieved a degree in Law and another from the Police Academy.
While Egyptian expatriates started voting on Friday, May 11, local polls will kick off on May 23-24.
