Voting starts on May 23-24 in an election to choose a new president after Hosni Mubarak was ousted last year. MP Essam Sultan of the Wasat Party has accused Shafiq of exploiting his previous position as head of Egypt’s Young Air Force Officers Association by selling thousands of acres of state land in Ismailia earmarked for the association at reduced prices to figures associated with the former regime, local media reported.
