At a conference organized by the Canada Egypt Business Council on Wednesday, Lieutenant General Ahmed Shafiq, who is running in the upcoming presidential elections, said he is on very good terms with the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF).
“The SCAF does not support me,” he said. “But we have good relations.”
“I am a fighter, and I like to beat difficulties,” Shafiq said. “But I support dialogue between the political forces and the military council.”
Mohamed ElBaradei, a likely candidate for the presidency in Egypt, directly attacked Ahmed ShafiShafik, former Egyptian Prime Minister.
ElBaradei blogged Wednesday on his twitter account:
“Ahmed Shafiq running in the upcoming presidential elections means that the Mubarak regime has not fallen as Shafiq A pillar of this system.”
”When the Prime Minister announced by Mubarak, who was dropped by the revolution show his intention to nominate to be the president of Egypt, former regime revolution alive,” before that adds ”the revolution will triumph.”
