HE President Abdel Fattah Saeed Al-Sisi

Former Field Marshal Abdel Fattah Saeed al-Sisi was sworn into office as President of Egypt on 8 June 2014, having earlier that year resigned from his post as the Commander in Chief of the Egyptian Armed Forces. As a civilian and as Deputy Prime Minister Sisi went on to win the presidential elections held in May 2014. Since then, and despite acts of terrorism, a DA’ISH insurgency in the Sinai, occasional bombings by elements from within or sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood, Sisi and his cabinet of technocrats have undertaken major steps to restore a sense of stability, revive the economy as well as undertake successful political and diplomatic initiatives beyond Egypt’s borders.


Army: Sisi first came to public attention when then President Muhammed al-Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) retired the head of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces ( SCAF) and promoted Sisi to take his place; to serve as the Commander-in-Chief as well as Minister of Defence in Morsi’s new cabinet. Sisi was known for his personal piety and that is considered the thinking behind Morsi’s decision. Morsi had confused piety with sympathy for the MB, a common error among Islamists. Morsi was increasingly perceived as a president solely dedicated to increasing the concentration of power in the hands of the MB. Morsi had ruled out any sort of massive public works necessary to generate new jobs — steps that would subsequently be undertaken by Sisi.

 

A Coup by Popular Demand: On June 30 2013, millions of Egyptians again took to the streets in larger numbers than ever before. They demanded Morsi step down. Morsi refused. He also refused Sisi’s demand that he negotiate an understanding with the united opposition, several dozen political movements that had either rallied or taken form during the 2011 Tahrir Uprising. Morsi had promised this opposition, on the eve of the second round of the election that brought him to power, a role in any government he might form; a promise that was never kept. So the armed forces intervened, deposing and arresting Morsi. At that moment Sisi enjoyed a massive popularity reminiscent of the following acquired by Gamal Abdul Nasser after his coup. But the MB’s organized protests against Sisi came to a head in August 2013 when the Interim government finally ordered the Ministry of Interior to disperse two large MB organized settlement-like-encampments in Cairo where MB speakers were calling for Morsi’s restoration, and refusing negotiations until that happened. They called on their supporters not to disperse but to welcome martyrdom. That call and the sporadic gunfire directed at the paramilitary police as they moved in, ultimately resulted in the death of many hundreds of protesters. Almost simultaneously, outbreaks of violence by pro-Morsi militants occurred in the countryside that included armed attacks on churches, police stations, priests and nuns.

 

Presidential Expectations: With the MB officially banned, its leadership and cadre either in prison or in exile, Egyptians have looked to Sisi to resolve other issues. A depressing feature of daily life in Egypt in the summer of 2014 were daily power cuts. Sisi was expected to act swiftly and effectively; to a great degree he has. The blistering hot summer of 2015 passed with barely a single power cut thanks to significantly increased imports and the redirection of available power to general rather than industrial use — a temporary solution that will require more imports until a new offshore natural gas field — estimated as the largest in the Mediterranean comes on stream within five years. But the major public works success in 2015 was completion this past summer of the excavation of a second Suez Canal running parallel to the first. Engineers had estimated the work would take three years but Sisi ordered it to be done in one year, and it was. The resulting industrial and residential zone between the two canals and now under construction should generate one million new jobs.
