And here I am waiting in front of the National TV Ch.1 at 8.18 PM for the upcoming Field Marshal Abdel Fatah El Sisi’s Televised speech which was supposed to be aired at 6 PM. It seems that it is a habit for Egypt’s rulers and future rulers as it seems.
What we know today was the only day for El Sisi to leave the army in order to run for presidency and so he technically resigned for his position as the minister of defense in a SCAF meeting “not a a real resignation but some sort of request to retire to SCAF”
Already Abdel Fatah El Sisi had no other day to do it except because next Sunday the Presidential elections committee will open the so-called Presidential elections candidacy 2014.
El Sisi had to leave the army tonight because his name will be registered as a civilian in the voters records tomorrow.
The army and police officers do not vote in the elections, they do not have that right according to the Constitution.
The meeting of SCAF headed by Adly Mansour is still going on. He promoted Major General Sobhi Sedky to General Rank. Sedky is the new minister defense now.
Already I do not understand why a former minister of defense is going to address the nation in a Televised speech when he already resigned from his position hours ago !? Not to mention that this former minister of defense.
Anyhow here is a live blog for this historical event as some Pro-El Sisi tweep said earlier on twitter , after all the man is next president !!
