Who Is Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi?
After the riots in January and February 2011 Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi was the youngest member of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), the body of the senior military officers who took over Egypt’s government. He had advanced ranks, commanded a mechanized infantry division, and served as commander of Egypt’s northern military region. He was appointed director of military intelligence in 2010.
Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi ( born November 19, 1954 in Cairo, Egypt) is an Egyptian military officer who became the head of state in July 2013 after President Hosni Mubarak resigned. After graduating from Egypt’s military academy under Egypt’s president, he joined the infantry corps and became commander of a mechanized infantry division in Egypt’s northern military zone. He also served as Egyptian military attaché in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia during the regime of President Hosni Mubarak.
Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi was elected President in May 2014 and elected in March 2018 for a second term. Sisi graduated from Egypt’s military academy in 1977 and served in the infantry. He served as a mechanized infantry commander and as director of military intelligence.
Following the 2011 Egyptian revolution and the election of Mohammed Morsi as Egyptian president, Sisi was appointed Secretary of Defense on August 12, 2012 by Morsi and replaced Mubarak-era Hussein Tantawi. On 12 August 2012, President Mohammed Morsi appointed Sisi to serve as Minister of Defence and Commander in Chief of the Egyptian Armed Forces.
After widespread demonstrations, Sisi sends a message from the Egyptian military to the country’s civilian government: Within 48 hours of people’s demands being met, the military will intervene to restore order. July 3, 2013 – Egypt’s military ousts Morsi, who is under house arrest. On July 3, the Egyptian army declares that if the country’s political parties fail to comply with a 48-hour televised ultimatum, giving them until July 3 to comply with the demands of Morsi’s opponents, and if Mohammed Morsi fails to build a national consensus under his leadership, the army will overthrow him.
On July 24, 2013, Al-Sisi called for mass demonstrations and gave the Egyptian army and police a mandate to crack down on terrorism in a speech at a military parade. On 26 July, hundreds of thousands of Egyptians gathered in the streets across the country to show their support for Egypt.
In his Revolution speech of June 30, Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi said that “Millions of Egyptians in every city and village have expressed their rejection of the ideology of those who wanted to take over the army against the prejudiced will of the people at a critical time. We have decided to take Egypt back from those who want to manipulate religion”.
The first conference on the national project Haya Karima (fair life and development in the countryside and villages of Egypt) was attended by Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly and several ministers as well as thousands of citizens representing all segments of the Egyptian population. “Haya Karima will build Egyptian human seed for our new republic”.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi speaks during a joint press conference with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades and Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis during the trilateral summit between Greece, Cyprus and Egypt on 21 October 2020 at the Presidential Palace in Nicosia, Cyprus. Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken reiterated the strong strategic partnership between the United States and Egypt and President Biden’s commitments to that relationship.
