Sisi to rule Egypt till 2030!

Egypt’s parliament, packed with loyalists of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, is set to vote on changes to the constitution that could keep the former military chief in power until 2030. The proposed amendments were initially introduced in February by a parliamentary bloc supportive of Sisi and updated this week after several rounds of parliamentary debates. It includes changing Article 140 of the constitution to allow the Egyptian president to extend his current four-year term, which ends in 2022, by two years. A further change would permit Sisi to stand for another six-year term and potentially remain president until 2030. Sisi led the army’s overthrow of president Mohamed Morsi in 2013 following mass protests against the Islamist leader’s rule.
