Abdel Fattah el-Sisi



Abdel Fattah Saeed Hussein Khalil el-Sisi (Arabic: عبد الفتاح سعيد حسين خليل السيسي‎ ‘Abd al-Fattāḥ Sa‘īd Ḥusayn Khalīl as-Sīsī, IPA: [ʕæbdel.fætˈtæːħ sæˈʕiːd ħeˈseːn xæˈliːl esˈsiːsi]; born 19 November 1954) is the sixth and current President of Egypt.[1] He was an Egyptian military commander who was Commander-in-Chief of the Egyptian Armed Forces, as well as Minister of Defence, from 12 August 2012 until 26 March 2014.[2] As head of the armed forces, he played the leading role in ousting Islamist President Mohamed Morsi, following mass protests against Morsi and his government. El-Sisi was subsequently appointed as First Deputy Prime Minister, while remaining Minister of Defense. El-Sisi resigned from the military on 26 March 2014, announcing he would run for president in the 2014 presidential election.[2] The poll, held between 26 and 28 May 2014, resulted in a resounding victory for El-Sisi.[3]


Lets see how well this goes. Will this former military leader be the leader that Egypt's needs or will the people rise again in a years time? Three times a charm?

We shall see, stay tuned.

The people have already started complaining about him. Also there will be no protests against him because he has made that illegal.

That's true, they were made illegal (not a good start) but if he's as bad as the last 2 presidents then law or not I have a feeling the Egyptian people will rise again.

Of course the Muslim Brotherhood's riot protests are to blame and Sisi took full advantage of it that and made protests illegal. Not a good start at all.

I was in soho square, sharm el skikh last night. there was a concert to celebrate his win. the tourists were enjoying it, the locals who were keeping the floors clean, serving in the bars etc, didn't seem to be celebrating at all. I felt quite sick. I know very little about the political situation, however a community mood of joy surely would have been easy enough to pick up on?

He also got Israel's blessing. How odd is that?
I guess in a few months the people will probably go after him and his puppet cabinet.
