Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi said on Wednesday that he will continue to build and develop the country until either the end of his life or his presidential term.

El-Sisi’s speech comes at a conference where Egypt’s prime minister and some of his cabinet are presenting the country's 2030 economic and development vision.

“[Egypt] is a great country, it can do anything,” the president added.

“[If] you truly love Egypt, I’m telling all Egyptians who are listening to me: Listen to my words only. Only mine,” the president stated  to an applauding audience, in an apparent reference to critics of government policies.

“I’m not lying, I’m not beating around the bush, and I have no other interest except that of my country,” El-Sisi said.

End of Term
Not end of life. Egypt does not need another Mubarak-like Army Dictator.

Of Countries and People ans El-Sisi
Countries don't have interests, only people have. El-Sisi has his interests and I have mine. I take the liberty to listen to my interests at least as much I as I listen to El-Sisi's :-).

Sisi should not back away from his statement
While the spin on social media is going to be vicious, Pres. Sisi should not in any way back away from his statement. He is absolutely right. If you were to listen to the echo chambers on social media and the spin of journalist you would think everybody in the country is huddled in the corners of their homes shaking in fear and starving. After all it is that narrative that have made some journalist very famous, hard to give up a good paying gig. The reality is, the country is moving forward, we've come a long way, and we have a long way to go. Look at the neighborhood, we could have been Libya, Syria or Iraq.
