Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to be inaugurated for third term as President of Egypt | Election Update


According to the constitution, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi’s upcoming six-year term is expected to be his last. He will be sworn in for a third consecutive term on Tuesday in the new capital near Cairo, as reported by government news outlet Al-Ahram.

After being re-elected in 2018 with 89.6 percent of the vote, El-Sisi, who has been in power for more than a decade, will officially start his new term on Wednesday. He first took office after the 2013 overthrow of the country’s first popularly elected president, Mohamed Morsi, and has been re-elected multiple times since.

Under El-Sisi’s leadership, Egypt has faced challenges, including economic crisis and human rights concerns. The country has jailed thousands of political prisoners, and while some have been released, rights groups say many more remain detained.

Egypt’s economy has also struggled, with issues like inflation, production shortages, and foreign currency limitations affecting trade. Efforts are being made to boost the economy, including significant financial support from countries like the United Arab Emirates and organizations like the International Monetary Fund.

While El-Sisi’s supporters believe this financial support will improve the economy, some analysts are skeptical. They argue that structural reforms are needed to reduce the influence of the military and government on the economy for long-term success.
