Hamdeen Sabbahi’s Chances in the 2014 Presidential Elections

EPC | 01 Nov 2013

The assessment monitors factors in favor and against Hamdeen Sabbahi in the upcoming presidential elections. The following are factors in favor of Sabbahi: • His achievements in the 2012 presidential elections, • His experience in working with masses, • Introducing himself as the nominee of the revolution, • The possibility of gaining support by the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamists. Factors against Sabbahi: • Lacking experience as a civil servant or working in decision making circles, • The military establishment’s skepticism towards him. The assessment says that Sabbahi has more chances of winning in face of political and independent figures, and less of a chance in front of a civilian candidate who enjoys the support of the army, and has no chances at all in front of Field Marshal El Sisi.
