• SISI SEEN WINNING EGYPT POLLS

    0

    CAIRO: The ex-army chief who ousted Egypt’s first democratically elected leader and crushed his Islamist movement was set for a landslide presidential election win on Tuesday, the final day of voting. The two-day election is the first since the frontrunner Abdel Fattah al-Sisi deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July, a move that unleashed the bloodiest violence in Egypt’s recent history. Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood is boycotting the vote, as are revolutionary youths who fear Sisi is an autocrat in the making. But the 59-year-old retired field marshall is expected to trounce his sole rival, leftist Hamdeen Sabbahi, amid widespread calls for stability. “The entire world is watching us, how Egyptians are writing history and their future today and tomorrow,” Sisi said.
