Egyptian Tourist Federation Endorses Shafiq

The Egyptian Federation of Tourism announced, Sunday, its support for Ahmed Shafiq in the presidential election runoff slated for 16 and 17 June. A statement issued by the federation said, “We support him for his clear vision and support of the important tourism industry.”

Chairman Hossam al-Shaer of the Chamber of Travel Agents was quoted by Al-Masri Al-Yaum as saying, “The West sees Shafiq as a liberal, which is reassuring. Also, the Freedom and Justice Party’s program for tourism is weak and shows that the party does not care about the industry.”
