Female candidate in Egyptian Salafist Al Nour party

The ultra-conservative Al Nour party had a female candidate on its party slate in the recent election.  Here is the campaign poster.

Can't find her picture?  She's the rose, at the bottom.  Al Nour actually doesn't want a woman to win, because running a government is supposedly a "man's job".  So why was she running then?  The law requires every party to have at least one female candidate.

Surely, birthers and their like-minded allies will see the uncanny similarity between Al Nour's logo and Obama's logo.  But in reality, Al Nour's graphic designer was probably just lazy.
