Egypt Welcomes New President
8 June 2014 By Abi Giwa
- Fattah El-Sisi has been sworn in as the new president of Egypt. He promises to bring inclusion to the country. How the Egyptian new president will achieve inclusion in a state he has driven dissent underground is uncertain.
- The world has witnessed El-Sisi's in overt political role; sacking an elected president and he has sworn to ensure Muslim Brotherhood does not survive in the country if he becomes the president.
- At swearing in ceremony, the new president has introduced a new tune to his song, distancing himself from the toughness he has shown forcing his way to office.
- But can El-Sisi be trusted? The question arises from the Egypt El-Sisi has molded: Independent media has no room and political opposition has become anathema. Out of this, the new president is talking about inclusion.
- The world will see how El-sisi will achieve his right about turn like a traffic police officer.
- Today, a large number of Egyptians are unhappy, safe El-Sisi's supporters. Two speeches, one about inclusion, another one vowing to deal with terrorists.
