Prominent Salafi leader, Hazem Salah Abu Ismail, demanded on Tuesday “empowering religion instead of the people.”

“Our mission today is to shift the people's empowerment, after the January uprising brought down tyranny, to the empowerment of religion,” the disqualified presidential candidate said on his official Facebook page.

The Islamist politician added, “The people could not agree about whether enabling a certain person is better than enabling another, but we could not disagree for a moment on all the goodness that lies in religious empowerment.”
