Presidential candidate Amr Moussa warned of attempts to rig votes in Egypt's villages and shantytowns through a process of collecting national ID (identification) cards.
In a campaign rally in Behira, Moussa explained that within days the nation will head to polls, to not just elect a candidate whom they trust, but to determine Egypt's path to democracy, prosperity, dignity and freedom.
Moussa added that the choice has become clear, "we either put Egypt on the path to fulfill the demands of the uprising and transform it into a real democratic state, with a solid economy and a place that we deserve and are prepared for, or get into, God forbids, a whirlpool for the next years or decades, as a result of principles and tools that paralyze Egypt's uprising. This whirlpool will drag us into internal, as well as regional, conflicts, that are hard to overcome."
Moussa called on the people to vote, adding that "if the majority saw that the elected president is aiming to reach consensus, the people will rally behind his efforts. When he is elected through gaining people's trust, that is when his expertise will come into effect, allowing however freedom of expression, which must be respected".
Moussa insisted that, if he should become president, negotiations with the majority will kick off to avoid clashes or conflicts which will delay the development of the nation.
Moussa criticized the former regime's arrogance, which he argued, neglected the needs of the people. He added that the people will no longer tolerate injustice, like happened with the constituent assembly that is tasked with drafting a new constitution.
