“Recently, I suffered attempts of intimidation, so no problems, I go ahead”, Abdel-Fatah El-Sisi said on Friday at the launch of the “Shoulder-To-Shoulder” initiative, which organizations publicly supported giving relief food aid to thousands of poor Egyptian at Packed stadium. Sisi tried to be tenacious and accused the Opposition of seeking to make the Egyptian people not tolerate and bore the woes and difficulties of the failed economic reforms. Egypt’s electorate in these-era stark that electoral corruption of the Mubarak era is still going strong, which means the next presidential election, 2024, is starting now with Threats and bribes. It is as difficult for Egyptians to meet basic daily needs such as food as it is easy for authorities to mobilize them into a stadium, so Sisi looked like a popular President.

How did Sisi win the past elections?

Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has been Egypt’s president since 2014 after he led the military’s overthrow of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. Before The first presidential term, Sisi was popular. So Egypt’s Sisi won 97% in an election with no real opposition. In 2018’s election, Sisi made it impossible for any political opponent to challenge him, and police arrested, tortured, and banished all who tried. “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice” was of the essential elements and principles as stipulated in the previous Constitution. Then Sisi made constitutional amendments allowing him to stay in power until 2034.

President al-Sisi’s removal

Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has an iron grip which terrorizes the Egyptians to prevent ask about his stand down! But we try to answer. Since 1952 Egypt’s military has expanded its control of the country, and change in power was from the top by military coups. The only Transition to an elected government was after a revolution in 2011, which ended with the military suspending the Democratic Experience in Egypt. So now it’s impossible for President el-Sisi’s removal by only elections, but by a strong social unrest or military coup.

The Opposition objects

Although the ruler was an absolute dictator, There were more alternatives to Sisi’s regime in Egypt, which is a discussion among Egyptians now. Ahmed Tantawi, the former Karama Party head and one of the vocal critics of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, has demonstrated courage and said: “We need a freely elected civilian leader, not al-Sisi”. “Sisi must answer the demand of Egyptians. Ten years in power is enough to Retire,” The Reform and Development Party head, Anwar Sadat, said.

Egyptian Opponents are skeptical that the Planned Presidential Vote will be Fair. “We’re citizens, not subjects. We have the right to criticize the government safely before discussing the elections,” Jamila Ismail, Constitution Party head, said. “The Egyptian government has trampled over even the minimum requirements for free and fair elections”. Later, Anwar Sadat, who works closely with senior officers, announced an explosion: another general may run for president.
