Egypt president's sole opponent holds small rally in Cairo
Associated Press
CAIRO: A small group of people have gathered in support of the sole candidate running against Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.

Saturday's rally for Moussa Mustafa Moussa lasted only about an hour and drew about three dozen people in downtown Cairo. But that was a stronger showing than he managed earlier this month, when nobody showed up at one of his rallies.

issi is virtually certain to win re-election in the March 26-28 vote. A string of potential contenders withdrew under pressure or were arrested, leaving the relatively obscure Moussa as the only rival. And he's a supporter of Sissi's government.
