Two Egyptians Running For European Parliament Elections

Maysara Soliman

Two Egyptians are running for the European Parliament elections set to be held between between the 23rd and 26th of May 2019 for the very first time.

Ahmed Abdel Hamid Khalaf Sayed was nominated by a Greek party Elines Rizo Sebastis to run in the elections, while Maysara Sulaiman was nominated by the Austrian People’s Party.

Egyptian Minister of Emigration and Egyptian Expatriates Affairs Nabila Makram personally contacted both candidates and expressed her pride in representing Egypt in the European Parliament and in participating in European politics.

The minister also urged Egyptian expats in Austria and Greece to participate in the vote, and expressed her gratitude to the Egyptian community and Egyptian Church in Austria for their support of Soliman.

“When we have a young man from Egyptian youth abroad who has reached this stage in the European Parliament elections, which will be a great addition to Egypt, we must give him all our support,” Makram said.

Makram labeled them as “an honorable model of Egyptian youth” and an example of a successful youth struggle.

The Ministry of Emigration of Egypt is responsible for managing and caring for the affairs of Egyptians residing outside, in response to the calls of Egyptians abroad to forge stronger ties with Egyptians living abroad and benefit from their experiences in various fields of development.
