The title of a recently released Reuters article is “Egyptians BACK constitution, opening way to Sisi presidential run” (Web-site/URL: http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/01/16/us-egypt-referendum-idUSBREA0F0IZ20140116).
“Egyptians OVERWHELMINGLY APPROVED a new constitution by referendum, state media reported on Thursday (January 16, 2014), a widely expected outcome that NUDGES (?) army chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ever closer to a bid for the presidency”.
“The vote advances a transition plan the military-backed government unveiled after deposing Islamist president Mohamed Mursi (Morsi/Morsy) last July (2013) following MASS UNREST OVER HIS RULE“. Well SCAF is WORSE.
“Around 90 percent of the people who voted approved the constitution, STATE-run media reported. Al-Ahram, THE STATE’S FLAGSHIP newspaper, said the constitution was approved by an “UNPRECEDENTED majority”, citing early results”. Again, as we’ve stated on many occasions “the state’s flagship newspaper” only SPITS OUT GOVERNMENT PROPAGANDA.
“Around 90 percent of the people who voted approved the constitution, state-run media reported. Al-Ahram, the state’s flagship newspaper, said the constitution was approved by an “UNPRECEDENTED majority”, citing early results”. “state-run media” MANIPULATES STATISTICS.
“In a statement”, Ehab Badawy, “Egypt’s spokesman for the presidency”, said: “Early indications point to the fact that Egyptians MADE HISTORY this week with a high level of participation in the vote on the draft Constitution. This vote represents A RESOUNDING REJECTION OF TERRORISM and a clear endorsement of the roadmap to DEMOCRACY (?), as well as ECONOMIC development and STABILITY (?)” There are THREE things to note here. First, let’s remind ourselves once again that the Muslim Brotherhood is now a “terrorist” group/organization. Secondly, once again SCAF is UNDEMOCRATIC. On top of this, Egypt HASN’T been “stable” since JANUARY 25, 2011.
Finally, according to Mohamed Qadri Said, “a retired army general who works at THE STATE’S Al-Ahram Centre for Strategic and Political Studies”, “I believe THIS IS THE MOST CONVENIENT TIME for Sisi to make an announcement if he has the intention to run. I DO NOT see anyone else running against him. He has DONE GREAT THINGS FOR THE COUNTRY and THE PEOPLE LIKE HIM (?)” This is what SCAF WANTS US TO BELIEVE (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
To conclude, again, this reinforces the fact that SCAF is now FULLY in charge in EGYPT.
