Anan's Candidacy for Egypt Presidency Returns Muslim Brotherhood to Political Debates

The Egyptian army has accused Anan of announcing his intention to run in the election "without getting the approval of the armed forces or following the required procedures to end his service in the military".

"Sami Anan the presidential candidate has been arrested and yesterday 30 persons of his campaign [were also detained] by the al-Sisi regime", campaign spokesman Mahmoud Refaat tweeted in English.

"The campaign of candidacy #Sami_Annan announces with great sorrow the suspension of the campaign until further notice, for the sake of keeping the security and safety of all citizens who are in need of change", the campaign's statement read.

Egypt's military on Tuesday arrested its former chief of staff, who was planning to run in upcoming elections against president Abdel Fattah El Sisi, accusing him of inciting against the armed forces and forgery.

"The Armed Forces could not allow itself to ignore the blatant legal violations committed by the aforementioned which constituted a gross breach of the rules and regulations governing the service of armed forces officers", said the statement, using uncompromising legal lingo.

A spokesman said in a televised statement that the army had summoned Anan because his announcement was meant to drive a wedge between the armed forces and the Egyptian people.

Anan announced on Saturday his intention to run in the 2018 presidential election, scheduled for March 26 and 28 Egypt, in a video posted on Anan's official Facebook page.

The sales growth rate for a stock is a measure of how the stock's sales per share (SPS) has grown over a specific period of time. The Company provides its services to retail investors, traders and independent registered investment advisors (RIAs).

Anan went on to cite "erroneous policies", which, he said, had forced Egypt's military to bear numerous responsibilities traditionally borne by Egypt's civil sector.

Sisi was elected president in 2014, a year after leading the military ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi when he was himself commander in chief.

An aide at Mr Ali's campaign, Khaled Abdel-Hameed, said the potential candidate and his campaign leaders would meet later on Tuesday to assess the situation following Mr Anan's arrest.

His detention came before the armed forces' statement, added Geneina, the former head of the Central Auditing Authority (CAA) who was sacked by Sisi in 2016 after he was accused of exaggerating the cost of corruption.

Moreover, Annan has been the subject of fierce criticism by the pro-el-Sissi media since he announced his intention to challenge the president.

Former prime minister Ahmed Shafiq said on January 7 that he would not stand, reversing a pledge he made from the United Arab Emirates in November.
