The Egyptian president Abdul Fattah Al Sisi’s speech at Cairo international stadium. According to Wikipedia, Sisi was born in Cairo and after joining the Egyptian Army, held a post in Saudi Arabia before enrolling in the Egyptian Army’s Command and Staff College. In 1992, Sisi trained at the Joint Services Command and Staff College in the United Kingdom, and then in 2006 trained at the United States Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
Sisi served as a mechanized infantry commander and then as director of military intelligence. After the Egyptian revolution of 2011 and the election of Mohamed Morsi to the Egyptian presidency, Sisi was appointed Minister of Defence by Morsi on 12 August 2012, replacing the Mubarak-era Hussein Tantawi.
As Minister of Defence, and ultimately Commander-in-Chief of the Egyptian Armed Forces, Sisi was involved in the military coup that removed then-President Mohamed Morsi from office on 3 July 2013, in response to the June 2013 Egyptian protests. He dissolved the Egyptian Constitution of 2012 and proposed, along with leading opposition and religious figures, a new political road map, which included voting for a new constitution, and new parliamentary and presidential elections.
