Official: Mortada Mansour wins Zamalek elections for presidency
Successful day for the Mansour family as Mortada Mansour and his son Ahmed Mansour win seats at the elections.
Mortada Mansour has won presidency of the Whites and so will stay in his post for at least the coming term [four years], beating Kamal Darwish.
Born on June 17, 1952, Mortada Mansour, a Lawyer by profession, previously held helm of Zamalek presidency in the year 2005 before the board was dissolved in the space of a year since he took on his position.
Before that, Mansour was Zamalek’s vice-president from the year 2001-2005, ironically to his current competitor for presidency, Kamal Darwich.
The period that both worked together is until this day regarded very highly in the club’s history as they managed to win Africa’s prize trophy, the CAF Champions league in 2003. The same year also marked the last time Zamalek won the Egyptian Premier league.
Mansour will succeed Kamal Darwish who was appointed as interim Zamalek president by the recently resigned sports minister and Al Ahly SC legend Taher Abou-Zeid.
Mortada wasted no time after his successful presidential campaign, promising the fans that they will attend Zamalek’s home match against Nkana in the CAF Champions league.
In the race for vice-presidency between Ahmed Galal, Omar Hareidy and Moustafa Kamal Helmy, it was Ahmed Galal that came out victorious and so will accompany Mortada Mansour for the next term.
