Egypt: Al Sissi to be president for life

Recommended Posts

A Phone call from Macron to Sissi stopped Arabs from inviting Syria to Arab League. This happened when even Saudi Arabia has stated that KSA has no objection to Syria being invited back in the Arab League.

Egypt should have been first country to restore its relations with Syria, but will be last the way things are going. No self respect.


Egyptian lawmakers back changes that could keep Sisi in power till 2034

On Feb 14, 2019


Addis Ababa, February 14, 2019 (FBC) – The Egyptian parliament on Thursday approved in principle proposed constitutional amendments that would allow President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to stay in power until 2034.

Parliament Speaker Ali Abdelaal said that 485 MPs of the 596-seat assembly voted in favour of the changes, comprising more than the two-thirds majority needed to pass the amendments.

The proposed changes will now go for a review in a parliamentary committee and then return to parliament for a second vote before they are presented for a national referendum expected before the middle of the year, according to Reuters.
