Ayman Abd El Aziz Nour is an Egyptian politician, a former member of the Egyptian Parliament, founder of the El Ghad party and chairman of the Ghad El-Thawra Party. Ayaman Nour was the first man to ever compete against former President Hosni Mubarak for the presidency of Egypt in 2005. Shortly after placing a distant second, in what are widely believed to have been corrupt elections, he was imprisoned by Hosni Mubarak under allegations of "forgery" which have been widely criticized to have been politically motivated and corrupt charges. Nour was released on "health grounds" on February 18, 2009 only a few months before he would have competed his prison sentence. Following the fall of Mubarak in the 2011 Revolution, Nour stated his intention to run for the vacant presidency. (via Freebase)
