Sabbahi souligne le danger d'avoir un président militaire

Sabbahi souligne le danger d'avoir un président militaire | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Presidential hopeful Hamdeen Sabbahi highlighted the danger of having a military president during a television appearance Tuesday, saying that a popular uprising against such a head of state could jeopardize the military institution.

The military would take the side of the public in a revolt against a civilian president, but a similar act against a president who hailed from its own ranks would put Egypt’s Armed Forces in a difficult position, Sabbahi said during an interview with private satellite channel Dream TV.

The Popular Current party leader, who came in third in 2012 presidential elections, is the first candidate to formally announce his intention to run this year amid widespread speculation that military chief and Defense Minister Abdel Fattah al-Sisi will soon announce his own candidacy. In January, the military formally declared support for the potential bid of its leader.

Sabbahi has repeatedly emphasized his civilian background as his main advantage over Sisi. While criticizing the idea of a military president, the liberal politician said he considers Sisi’s motives for running to be patriotic and would be honored to have the general on his own team should Sabbahi win the election.

Abdel Fattah al-Sissi sera candidat à la présidentielle égyptienne

Abdel Fattah al-Sissi sera candidat à la présidentielle égyptienne | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Le commandement de l’armée a donné mandat lundi à son chef, le maréchal Abdel Fattah al-Sissi, pour se présenter à l’élection présidentielle en Egypte, a indiqué l’agence officielle Mena. Le maréchal, très populaire homme fort du pays depuis qu’il a annoncé la destitution du président islamiste Mohamed Morsi le 3 juillet, avait peu auparavant été promu au plus haut grade de l’armée.

Pour être candidat toutefois, celui qui est également ministre de la Défense et vice-Premier ministre du gouvernement intérimaire doit prendre sa retraite de militaire ou démissionner de l’armée, car la Constitution stipule que le président doit obligatoirement être un civil. L’agence ajoute que le maréchal Sissi, âgé de 59 ans,«devrait annoncer sa décision définitive au peuple dans les heures à venir».

Interim Prime Minister Hazem al-Beblawi has given perhaps the strongest official endorsement for Colonel General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s potential presidential bid to date. 

Beblawi made the remarks on Thursday during talks at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Sisi has not yet announced his plans regarding the upcoming presidential elections, although speculation that he would enter the race is running high — especially after the overwhelmingly positive vote in the recent constitutional referendum, which some see as a sign of popular support for the defense minister.  

“Sisi is quite popular among Egyptians, and he would make a candidate that a citizen can count on. But the final decision remains in the hands of the people,” Beblawi told Reuters on the sidelines of the Davos Annual Meeting.

Quelles sont les étapes juridiques préalables à la candidature d'Al-Sissi à l'élection présidentielle ?

Quelles sont les étapes juridiques préalables à la candidature d'Al-Sissi à l'élection présidentielle ? | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

With Defense Minister Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s recent promotion to field marshal Monday, followed by the green light given to him by the SCAF, the question remains: does he have to resign from his position in the military in order to run?

Article 141 of the constitution reads: “The candidate must enjoy their civil and political rights, have fulfilled military service or been legally exempted from it and at the time of nomination must be at least 40 years of age. The law shall regulate other conditions of candidacy.”

Active military and police personnel are not allowed to vote and therefore do not enjoy political rights.

Tahani al-Gebali, a former judge on the Supreme Constitutional Court, has said in an interview on Al-Arabiya Al-Hadath channel that Article 103 of the new constitution allows for Sisi to hold onto his position as field marshal until the election result is announced. She reiterated that he does not need to resign from his position in order to run in a statement to privately owned Al-Masry Al-Youm.

Amr Moussa a déclaré qu'il ne sera pas candidat à la présidence. Il soutient le général Abdel Fattah al-Sissi qui, selon lui, assumera les responsabilités présidentielles d'une manière démocratique

According to Moussa, Sisi is capable of achieving harmony between the presidency and the army. He also noted that the constitution will constitute a new chance to move forward from the transitional period and establish the third republic on the basis of democracy and a civil state. Moussa shed light on the weakness characterizing the role of Egypt within its regional surroundings, expecting the Geneva II talks, in which Egypt is taking part, not to reach a settlement for the Syrian crisis.

Moussa served as Egypt's foreign minister and then as head of the Arab League. He re-emerged on the Egyptian political scene after the January 2011 revolution, presenting his candidacy for president. However, Moussa did not make it to the seat of power after he received only 10.9% of the votes. A number of decisions made by the administration of former President Mohammed Morsi and his government, and described by Moussa as unwise, have led him to return to the political scene to contribute to the formation of the National Salvation Front (NSF). The NSF was a strong backer of the deposition of Morsi and the ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood. After that, Moussa headed the 50-member committee tasked with drafting the new Egyptian constitution. Last Saturday, 98.1% of voters approved of the constitution in a referendum.

Brotherhood figure to leave presidential advisory board

Brotherhood figure to leave presidential advisory board | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Shura Council majority leader Essam al-Erian agreed with the presidential office Sunday to leave the president’s advisory board.

He will now head the Freedom and Justice Party’s parliamentary bloc in the upper house of Parliament, and this position would constitute a conflict of interest, according to the new Constitution, he said.

“I cannot have a job with legislative branch and another with the executive branch,” he wrote on Facebook, wishing President Mohamed Morsy success.

Erian joined the presidential advisory team shortly after Morsy’s election.
