A question we hear these days is: Will President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi run for the presidency? I have heard this question more than once. The echoes of the crowd’s chants on June 30, 2013 are still echoing . The people were demanding President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi to run for the presidency.
Everyone was calling on him to eliminate terrorism and restore security to the country, today we are calling on him to complete what he started on the path of development and construction following these achievements that were accomplished. The Egyptian people called on him to save the country from the dark fate of the brotherhood gangs who were plotting to destroy the country and spread devastation throughout the Arab region.
God responded to the calls of the Egyptians, and the president responded to the call of duty and ran for elections, and the Egyptian people fullfiled the promise to whoever responded to the call.
El-Sisi came up to the expectations.. The masses of the June 30 revolution called on him to run for the presidency at a time when this step was a risk that only the brave leader could take. He considered his leadership of the army as a responsibility and a destiny.
Since then, Sisi began building the new Egypt, which witnessed huge qualitative leaps. We have Giant national projects in all fields, sending a message to the world that Egypt is on its way to the new republic, and another message to the Egyptian people that President Sisi places among his priorities establishing a comprehensive (economic and social) development renaissance in accordance with Egypt’s Vision 2030, despite all the challenges and difficulties facing the world.
Egypt confronted the Coronavirus pandemic, and remained steadfast in the face of the challenges and crises of the Ukrainian-Russian war, in the face of what it endured from the crises of neighboring countries in Libya, Sudan and Syria, it remained away from any “side battles”.
The president eliminated slums in the cities, and did not forget a decent life for 60 million citizens in the countryside, villages, and rural cities, and he was keen to improve the conditions of women, youth, and people with special needs.
Since taking office, president Sisi has sought to lay the foundations of the state, rebuild its national institutions, and bring about a major development renaissance by launching a sustainable development strategy in education, innovation, knowledge, scientific research, social justice, transparency, efficiency of government institutions, economic development, urban development, energy, culture, environment, domestic policy, national security, and foreign policy, and health.
But to complete what he started...and for the sake of a new Egypt, I call on him to run for the presidency.
