Egypt: The threat of al-Sisi's long term power grip
In this interview Issandr El Amrani of the International Crisis Group (ICG) deals with the current purge in the Egyptian military and political sphere ahead of the presidential election on March 26th - 28th 2018. According to El Amrani it is likely that even the power base of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi in the military will not tolerate a lifelong presidency of al-Sisi and thus El Amrani sees future tensions arising inside the strongest force in Egyptian society.
