Former Member of Parliament Mohamed Abu Hamed began on Saturday a new petition campaign, which aims to collect 15 million signatures demanding the departure of President Mohamed Morsi.
Abu Hamed announced the campaign on his Twitter account, explaining that petitioning in conjunction with holding peaceful protests, filing lawsuits against Morsi, and exposing violations conducted by his regime to the public would force him to leave.
Abu Hamed added that his campaign could succeed if it obtained 15 million signatures.
A copy of each signatory’s national ID is required to validate their signature.
The former member of parliament claimed on his Twitter account that 93,000 signatures have been collected so far. He added that the campaign has 350 volunteers in six governorates.
Abu Hamed said that if any citizen in Egypt collected 100 or more signatures, a campaign representative would come and collect them.
Mohamed Abu Hamed is known for his opposition towards Morsi’s presidency and the Muslim Brotherhood.
