 A number of prominent politicians, activists, and journalists launched a campaign to boycott the upcoming 2018 elections by Sisi coup regime in Egypt.

 

 
Among signatories to campaign launching statement: 
 
Dr. Yahya Al-Qazzaz, professor of Geology at Helwan University, media figure  Azza Al Hennawi, journalist Medhat Abu Dalila, and Hassan Hussein, the managing editor of Al Anwar Newspaper.
 
 
The founding statement of the "Campaign to Boycott Presidential Elections"  pointed out that “in view of the deteriorating living conditions that surpassed all expectations, it is certain that the popular boycott of the elections this time will be much larger than before.
 
 
"All the revolutionaries and the democratic forces shall unite in a popular campaign to turn the nationwide boycott into an effective boycott" the statement said.
 
 
Adding "It will expose the current regime and those participating from the opposition, and present a revolutionary program that expresses the interests of the hard-working and poor people."
 
 
The campaign was initially signed by more than 260 citizens, calling upon every honorable Egyptian to join.
 
 
"Let us rise to boycott the Sisi elections, using all forms of propaganda, and form nationwide popular boycotting committees in neighborhoods, workplaces, universities, cities and villages" the statement added. 
 
 
The goal of the campaign, according to the statement, is to create a “popular democratic republic” that should:
