The Muslim Brotherhood asked Egypt's former intelligence chief Omar Suleiman to nominate himself for presidency in 2011, Hussein Kamal, former head of Sulieman's office, said on June 25, 2013... Kamal said in a press conference in Cairo that a representative of the Brotherhood – from which current President Mohamed Morsi hails – visited Suleiman in Alexandria in the summer of 2011 and asked him to nominate himself for presidential elections.According to Kamal, the representative told Suleiman, who passed away in July 2012, that this would be on the condition that his vice-president and executive office be made up of Brotherhood members."They wanted him to be a puppet president who would implement the orders of the [Brotherhood's] guidance office," Kamal said."They gave [Suleiman] three months to think about it, but he refused," he added. In a conference held to "reveal information about the Brotherhood's rule," Kamal, who currently does not hold any official position, said that he does not represent the Egyptian General Intelligence Service and is speaking for himself as an "Egyptian citizen."Kamal, who was also Suleiman's office head when the former intelligence chief was appointed the country's vice-president during the 18-day January 2011 uprising, talked about Morsi's November 2012 constitutional decree, saying that it was sent to the presidency "in an envelope from the [Brotherhood's] guidance office."Kamal described the performance of the Brotherhood and its political arm, the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), who have a parliamentary majority, as a "failure."In addition, Kamal attacked Qatar calling it a "statelet."
Kamal said that former president Mubarak helped the father of former Qatar emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani when the sheikh overthrew his father in 1995.Kamal claimed that by helping Egypt financially, Qatar wants to abuse its economy as "it is the Egyptian people who will repay these loans."
