Washington not backing any Egyptian candidate

Egyptian walk past a huge poster of Egypt's former Defence Minister and armed forces chief General Abdul Fatah Al-Sisi in downtown Cairo, on March 27, 2014The United States vowed Thursday it was not backing any particular candidate in upcoming Egyptian elections, with Army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi strongly favored to win. Sisi’s candidacy is being hailed by the millions of Egyptians weary of more than three years of turmoil since the overthrow of veteran strongman Hosni Mubarak.

Washington has long held an official position of non-interference in its Arab ally’s political process.
