CAIRO (Reuters) - An influential Egyptian hardline Islamist movement, the Salafi Call, will back moderate Islamist Abdel Moneim Abol Fotouh for president, a founding member of the movement told Reuters on Saturday, dealing a blow to the Muslim Brotherhood's chances.
"The Salafi Call has decided by majority vote to back Abdel Moneim Abol Fotouh in the presidential elections," Yasser Borhamy, the senior founding member of the movement, said. "The Nour Party, the political wing of the Salafi Call, has also voted to back Abol Fotouh," he added.
The Nour Party came second to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt's parliamentary elections.
