"Thus I have decided not to run in the upcoming 2018 presidential elections", Shafik said in a statement posted on the social media site on Sunday.

The SIS official spokesman, Mahmoud al-Sherif, said that the committee is scheduled to announce the date on which candidate can officially start submitting their candidacy papers, the procedures governing the elections, and the procedures and timing of each election stage in a total of 12 decisions to be issued. My stay at UAE distanced me from closely monitoring the developments and achievements that happened in Egypt.

"I saw that I will not be the ideal person to lead the state during the coming period". Upon his arrival, Shafiq said that he had 'the chance to investigate more and see exactly what is needed' in Egypt prior to announcing his final stance.

He briefly served as prime minister under autocratic President Hosni Mubarak, who stepped down in early 2011 following 18 days of popular demonstrations against his regime.

Egyptian human rights lawyer and opposition leader Khaled Ali said in November that he would challenge President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi in the 2018 presidential election, provided he is not barred from the contest.

The 76-year-old, an ex-air force commander and former aviation minister, narrowly lost a presidential election to Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Mursi in 2012 before fleeing for the United Arab Emirates, where he has lived since. However, he is widely expected to run for a second term.
