For the first time in Egypt an ACTRESS seeks for presidency!!!!! such incident was impossible during the ruling period of Mubarak. This was a big surprise for the Egyptians as well as Arabs.
Somaya Al Khashab announced she will run for president in next Egyptian elections. Somaya is expecting big support from her fans.
She mentioned on her Twitter page that she is running for president. She also said she has a great plan to build the new Egypt, develop its people, fight corruption, end poverty and unemployment. She posted that it is about time for Egyptian women to get their rights and take supreme posts that are available only for men.
Effective application of equality at work between the two sexes is one of her targets. She said she is popular in Egypt, which qualifies her to win in fair and honest elections.
It is worth mentioning that Al Khashab is the third woman (not actress) to run for Egyptian presidency, after media personality Buthayna Kamel and writer Anas Al Wagoud both announced running in elections.
Officially, until this moment, no response was issued on this regard from the concerned authorities.
