Abdel Fattah El- Sisi, the president of Egypt, openly declared his decision to  contend for a third term in the coming election for president, which is  slated to take place in December, on Monday.

Former army  principal El- Sisi has been president since 2014, and after constitutional changes four years ago that extended the possibility of his term until 2030, it has been extensively anticipated that he’ll run for another term. 

The declaration comes after El- Sisi’s  sympathizers launched a flurry of  juggernauts to support his candidature, including billboards and other public messaging. 

His intention to run for office again has major ramifications for the political landscape and the policies of the country because he is an important force in Egyptian politics.

The beginning of El-Sisi’s rise to power was his role in the 2013 overthrow of Muslim Brotherhood figure Muhammad Morsi. He then won with a resounding 97 percent of the vote in both the 2014 and 2018 presidential elections, solidifying his standing and support among the population.

However Egypt faces several significant obstacles as it prepares for this next election. A record-high rate of inflation and a prolonged lack of foreign currency characterize the country’s precarious economic state. 

 Undoubtedly, addressing these economic issues will be a major focus of El- Sisi’s  crusade and, if re-elected, his third term in government.  President El- Sisi’s vision, policy recommendations, and plans to overcome Egypt’s economic challenges are in the  spotlight as the country gears up for the forthcoming election.
