In response to the flood of questions the Daily News Egypt has received in the last day regarding the last question on General Abdul Fatah Al-Sisi running for president, the DNE would like to shed further light on the matter.

The question was asked because of Al-Sisi’s rising popularity on the streets. The military spokesman Colonel Ahmed Ali was quite candid, as always, in answering the question. As stated in the interview Al-Sisi has no plans for running for presidency. What Colonel Ali was explaining is that the military institute does not control who runs for the presidential election even if he was ex-military. Colonel Ali was adamant about this point; the military institute is keeping clear from the political life.

The armed forces new policy of being open to the media has given us the chance to ask any question and keeping with this sentiment, the question on Al-Sisi’s possible candidacy was asked and answered.

We call upon media outlets to be thorough in their coverage of such sensitive matters and to analyze the interview as a whole, instead of sensationalizing what the DNE has not reported.

    “The question was asked because of Al-Sisi’s rising popularity”
    “The military spokesman Colonel Ahmed Ali was quite candid, as always”
    “The armed forces new policy of being open to the media has given us the chance to ask any question”

    Notice something ? Usually, this is called advertising, not journalism …

    ولو فرض أن سيادة الفريق أول السيسى رشح نفسه فى انتخابات الرئاسة ما العيب فى ذلك ….. ولو تم اختياره من قبل الشعب … أليست هذه هى الديموقراطية .. كون أن سيادة الفريق أول السيسى منتميا للمؤسسة العسكرية فهى إضافة مشرفة له و لنا كمصريين ولكن ليعلم الجميع أن المصري حينما يختار رئيسه .. فلن يختار إلا الأجدر من الناحية الشخصية أو العلمية … ولن يسمح المصرى بأى حال من الأحوال أن يفرض أحد طبيعة من يحكمه … فلو آثر أن يكون منتميا لهذه المؤسسة العسكرية المصرية العريقة فلن يثنيه

    أحد عن هذا الإختيار وستكون هذه قناعته حتى لو لم يوفق فى الإنتخابات .. …

    Col. Ali is a credible man, and for sure he didn’t mean involving Gen. El-Sisi in political life, any other commentary comes from el e5wan is rejected.

  • Ahmed Shosha

    more than 65% to 70% of the Egyptian population is respected and appreciated the General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and puts him in the denominator of the leader of this nation, And all these Egyptians wish and supported the candidacy of El-Sisi to be the head the Republic for his Secretariat requested by the people, god safe Egypt and Egyptians
