Egypt’s Candidates to Undergo Health Checks

By  | 

Egypt’s Health Minister Adel el-Adawy received on Thursday a decree to hold physical and mental medical examinations on candidates to run for president.

A report on the candidates’ suffering from any physical or mental diseases that may affect their performance in duty will be prepared, Adawy said.

The health directorate will hand the medical report to the candidate to be able to present it to the High Election Commission within the paperwork required to run for president, he added.

The minister pointed out that the standards to be implemented on the candidates for presidency are the same as those required for appointment in other government positions.
