Egypt will re-nominate Ahmed Aboul-Gheit as Secretary-Generalof the Arab League (AL) for a second term, Egyptian Presidential spokesman Bassam Rady said on Saturday.



President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi sent messages to Arab leaders to express Egypt’s intention to re-nominate Aboul-Gheit as the AL chief for another five years, Rady said in a statement, adding that Cairo is looking forward to the leaders’ support for this nomination.


The spokesman explained that the re-nomination comes within the framework of the great interest that Egypt attaches to the work of the AL which serves Arab peoples.


This characterized the role of Aboul-Gheit during his first term of wise management for the joint Arab action, Rady added.


The first term of the 78-year-old secretary-general will end this June. He once served as Egypt’s foreign minister from July 2004 to March 2011.
