|Campaign||Zoetermeer Mayoral election 2020|
Member of the Rijnland Water Board
|Status||Declared: 10th November, 2018 |

The 2020 mayoral campaign of Shady Morsi, Member of the Rijnland General Assembly and Political Activist officially began on March 1 2019. As no incumbent Water Board member has ever mounted a serious bid for the mayorality (usualy done by alderman), Morsi was considered a "longshot" and "underdog" candidate. Aswell the fact that Shady Morsi is the most far-left candidate for Mayor in an usualy right wing city..
Morsi did not expect to win the election outright, his strategy was to either split the progressive vote in the election since mayors are elected by municipal councilors rather than by popular vote where Morsi would have bargaining power sufficient to determine, or at least strongly influence, the selection of a winner.
If elected, Morsi would be the first Non-Dutch to become Mayor of Zoetermmer. and also the first non-Dutch mayoral ticket of Mayor and Deputy Mayor. Morsi would also have been the youngest mayor of Zoetermeer at 21
