The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood chose its candidate for Egypt's upcoming presidential elections: its deputy leader Khairat al-Shater. Born in 1950, Khairat, an engineer, has ten children, and ten grandchildren (an ominous sign for family planning efforts). After becoming politically active, he was imprisoned four times, once during Gamal Abdul Nasser's era in 1968, then in 1992, 1995 and 2001.
Here is a full profile by the New York Times.
Al-Shater has previously declared that he is committed to all treaties signed with Israel; he has been criticized for maintaining such views, but Israel welcomed his statement.
