Former minister of defence, Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi, resigned from the military last Wednesday night, paving the way for his running in the long-awaited presidential elections.

“I am here before you humbly stating my intention to run for the presidency of the Arab Republic of Egypt,” Al-Sisi said in a televised statement. “Only your support will grant me this great honour,” he added.

Al-Sisi’s supporters see him as a saviour who can end the political turmoil dogging Egypt since the 25 January Revolution.
