Egypt: Awa labelled as Brotherhood’s secret presidential nominee

Experts in Islamist movements have said they believe Islamic thinker Mohamed Selim al-Awa, an Egypt presidential hopeful, is the undeclared nominee for the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt’s largest Islamist group.

The Brotherhood had declared it will not name a candidate for the country’s presidential race expected by the end of 2011. The experts interviewed by Al-Masry Al-Youm voiced doubts about Awa’s denial of the suggestion.
