Renowned politician Amr Moussa briefed state-owned news agency MENA of the electoral platform of Field Marshal Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.

El-Sisi, who is widely anticipated to win the upcoming presidential elections, has not yet announced if he is participating in the race or not.

According to the former head of the 50-member constitutional drafting committee, El-Sisi’s platform is concerned with building the state on the basis of modernity while taking into consideration the mandates ratified by the 2014 national charter.

“The [electoral] platform will determine the framework of the candidate’s vision to build and establish prosperity to the people while respecting the freedoms and rights granted in the new constitution,” said Moussa adding that the plan also includes a re-formulating "the development and investments map" in Egypt.

He further added that prominent figures and experts are being involved in discussions on the electoral platform.

Regaining security and fighting corruption are also on El-Sisi’s agenda, says Moussa.

Egypt’s presidential elections are expected to be finalized before July 17, according to interim president Adly Mansour. The date for registration has not yet been announced.

To date, the only presidential candidate to declare his campaign is Nasserist figure Hamdeen Sabbahi, who has been an outspoken critic of El-Sisi's presidential hopes, arguing that he should retain his post as defence minister and not enter politics.

A recent survey conducted by Egyptian polling center Baseera said 51 percent of Egyptians would vote for El-Sisi, while 45 percent of Egyptians said they were undecided as to who they would vote for.

I hope he becomes president and the economy fails, which is inevitable. El sissi will end up on jail and Egyptians will realise that the military can no more solve their problems than Islamists. Egypt needs young dynamic people who want a free market. Not old general's any more.

Sissi represents the deep state, the corrupt body ruling Egypt since King Faruk
If he becomes President, Egypt will become another Somalia. Egyptians will give in to despair, apathy, and violence will be rampant. Egypt is already a beggar state. Sissi is the ultimate prescription of a failed state. Egypt will be more tyrannical. more impoverished, less democratic and hypocracy to the new "great" leader will shape the Egyptian political discourse.
