πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡¬ Egyptian legislators propose presidential term extension | Al Jazeera English



Egypt will consider extending the presidential term from four to six years, a senior legislator has said, which could allow President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to stay in power beyond 2022 when his second term ends.
The speaker of Egypt’s parliament, Ali Abdelaal, said on Sunday he received a motion from MPs proposing constitutional amendments that will be considered by Parliament after it is discussed in committee. He gave no details on the recommended changes.
But Abdel-Hadi al-Qassabi, head of the Support Egypt parliamentary bloc that is sponsoring the amendments, said they included extending the presidential term.
Dalia Fahmy, an associate professor of political science at Long Island University in New Jersey, talks to Al Jazeera about the significance of the proposed legislation.

  1. second Arab spring will start from Egypt. Kill SISI and save Egypt from evil zionist Israel and USA.

  2. Where is usa the hero of democracey

  3. omg..that's the start of "DICTATORSHIP" ……"corruption"…

  4. Whats so difficult nowadays? . . . Just ask Bully Sam to declare U as president . . . Dont believe me? Just look at Venezuela . . . Even election-uncontested person can become president if Bully Sam supports UπŸ˜‚πŸ˜ƒ . . .

  5. A sisi is a puppet of the USA.
    Ask any Egyptian.

  6. What a pitifull attempt at disguising a totalitarian dictatorship. I hope Sisi rots in the ground very soon.

  7. Lol but the USA is OK with thatπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  8. President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi comes from a religious family and frequently quotes Quranic verses during informal conversations; El-Sisi's wife wears the Islamic hijab, so he probably thinks he should stay in power to please God.

  9. Only 10 percent voted for that infirm parliament.. all in it are hard liners sisi supporters

  10. Another Dictator. He is worse than all of them. At least Mubarak and the Previouse president didn't kill or put his own people in jail!

  11. Lol they deserve this. The guy was open about wanting to oppress the people as a means of control before he even got elected. Stupid Egyptians keep watching your mousalsalat that sure is going to help you rise from the dirt and filth you live in. Educate yourselves fools, you don't need to go to school to become a knowledgeable person it only requires dedication. Sadly your more dedicated to eating your foolmadamas with bread in front of TV screens and hookahs all day. In the day of judgement Allah will ask you, what did you do with the time I have given you. What a pathetic reply you'd be giving him in return…
