The party declared that out of its belief in “national cooperation… the part decided to join the campaign and opening its headquarters for the activities.”
Future of Nation has been a supportive of every social, diplomatic, and security decisions the presidency takes since Al-Sisi was sworn in office. Most of the party’s critical statement are directed to apparatus in charge of education, health, and local affairs, but never attempt to questions policies made by defence, security, diplomatic, and intelligence bodies.
The pro-government party was formed after the 25 January Revolution and was founded by businessmen. It ranked second during parliamentary elections after the Free Egyptians Party (FEP) with nearly 50 members winning seats in the parliament.
President-elect Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi took the oath-of-office before the Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC) on June 2014, beginning his four year presidency.
Following the ouster of former president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013, then Minister of Defence Al-Sisi had announced a transitional roadmap. The first step was the passing of a new constitution in January, followed by presidential elections. Parliamentary elections are expected in six months.
The presidential election results were announced on 3 June 2014, with Al-Sisi winning 96.9% of valid votes, beating his only contender, Nasserist politician Hamdeen Sabahy.
Next year, an elections is expected to take place. However, no candidates have officially announced that they will run for the presidency.
