A Saudi blogger  Mojtahd  reported that  Saudi king Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz gave prince Talal an estimated tens of millions of Riyals  to support the publicity campaign of the Egyptian presidential candidate Omar Suleiman.

The donation granted is an indication of the depth of the relationship between Prince Talal and the former Intel leader  in Egypt.

This information appeared on Mojtahd's Twitter page, which is designated to expose political scandals in the Kingdom.

Prince Talal Bin Abdul Aziz, however, denied that they donated the tens of millions in support of Suleiman's campaign, stating that the Kingdom supports all of the presidential candidates without any preferences.

Omar Suleiman, the presidential candidate and ex- vice president to Egypt, in addition to being the ex Chief of Intelligence, came out as the number one choice for president according to a poll published by " Al Maser Al Youm" ( Egypt Today) newspaper, which quoted the Egyptian Foundation for Public Opinion Research.

This is the first survey of it's kind since the filing deadline for the office of president.
