After nominating Dr. Ahmed Fahmi, a Professor at Zagazig University, for Speaker of Shura Council, it became evident that the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) selects its parliamentary leaders based on their competence as academic figures enjoying more than a fair share of critical, rational thinking and their abilities to build effective strategic plans. This was also reflected in their choice of Dr. Saad Katatni Speaker of the People's Assembly.

Dr. Ahmed Fahmi is a Pharmacology Professor who received his PhD from the Tubingen University in Germany.

He began his academic career as a university teacher's assistant at the Faculty of Pharmacology, after receiving a Very High Achievement grade with honors in 1976. He continued teaching until he became a professor in 1993. Later, he headed the Pharmacology Department, from 1994 to 1997 and again from 2000 to 2004.

Dr. Fahmi later taught Theory in Pharmacology, Toxicology, Biological Standardization and Forensic Chemistry to undergraduate and graduate students, at various Egyptian universities including Zagazig, Al-Fateh University (Tripoli, Libya), The 6th of October University, Misr University for Science and Technology and Misr International University.

Dr. Fahmi supervised more than 50 Master and PhD degree research papers in Zagazig, Cairo, Alexandria, Helwan, Tanta, Ein-Shams and Minya Universities. He authored over 60 scientific researches published in a number of science magazines.

He participated in syndicate and community work early in his career, and has been a member of the Pharmacists Syndicate board and Science Committee Rapporteur since 1992. Moreover, he was on the Egyptian Health Department's Supreme Pharmaceutical Supervisory Committee from 1997 to 2008. Further, he has been a member of the National Specialized Councils since 2000.

Dr. Fahmi has served as a member on the Pharmacology Committee of the Drug Policy and Planning Center for 10 years, and has been on the Board of Directors of the Egyptian Pharmaceutical Society for 6 years, and was also a member of the German Pharmaceutical Society.

He was named 'Man of the Year' by the US Institute of Biological Sciences in 2004, due to his significant contributions in community service research. Furthermore, he was selected to serve as one of the scientific advisers for the American Institute of Biosciences in North Carolina, and has been a member of the Board of Management of the Pharmaceutical Society of Egypt for 6 years, and a member of the Association of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, researching diabetes.

Dr. Fahmi is married with three children: Abdul Rahman, a neurologist; Omar, an urologist; and Osama, a pharmacist; he also has four grandchildren.

Dr. Fahmi joined the Muslim Brotherhood in 1978, and was a member on the Sharqiya governorate parties' and syndicates' Political Coordination Committee. He also took part in many demonstrations calling for reform in Egypt, as well as the January 25 Revolution.
