Days ahead of Egypt's presidential election, Moussa Mostafa Moussa, the only candidate standing against incumbent Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, is avoiding the limelight. Moussa's presidential bid seemed to come as a surprise even to his own party. Until then, the leader of the Ghad party had been organizing events supporting a second term for Sisi.Moussa denies suggestions by critics that he is running just to provide a candidate other than Sisi in the election, but is still vocally supportive of the former general and army commander and has said he hopes he wins.Egypt's election commission says the vote will be free and fair, and Sisi's campaign says no candidate wanting to run has been blocked, but the events surrounding other challengers have all but guaranteed Sisi a landslide victory.
