Egypt's Moussa says presidential poll must come first

CAIRO - Outgoing Arab League chief Amr Moussa said on Tuesday he wanted Egyptian presidential elections to come before people vote for a new parliament and said he would run for president for only one term.
Moussa, an Egyptian who was secretary-general of the Arab League for a decade, who is a front runner in the race, said in February he intended to run for the presidency but would make a final decision once constitutional amendments were finalised.
"In my opinion the presidential elections should come before the parliamentary one as the parliament election needs to have strong parties," the 74-year-old told a crowd of youth at a cultural centre late on Tuesday.
