News anchor and activist Bothaina Kamel has completed her medical examination required for running for presidency, according to the Hospital Chief of Qasr Al-Ainy Hospital Taymour Mustafa, state run Al-Ahram newspaper reported Sunday.

Mustafa clarified that the test results will be sent to the Supreme Electoral Commission in a sealed envelope within 48 hours and that no one is allowed to know the results except for the commission.

The 51 year-old presidential hopeful publicly opposed the Egyptian government at the time of Mubarak, Supreme Council of Armed Forces and the Muslim Brotherhood. Kamel has been a supporter of the 30 June protests and the military backed ouster of Mohamed Morsi. In 2005 Kamel helped found the elections watch-dog Shayfeencom.

This is the second time that Kamel has announced her intention to run for the presidency. During the 2012 elections she was not able to meet the required number of signatures supporting her to run.
