Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi took on Tuesday the medical examination that is required for candidates in the nation's presidential elections scheduled for March, state-owned agency MENA reported. Sisi is the first to undergo the check-up, and it comes just a few days after his announcement on Friday that he intends to run for a second term as the nation's leader. He announced his candidacy at a conference highlighting the accomplishments of the Egyptian state since he came to power in 2014. According to the National Elections Authority (NEA), presidential hopefuls must take a medical examination – both physical and mental – by the General Administration for Specialized Medical Councils. According to the NEA regulations: “The General Administration for Specialized Medical Councils shall prepare a medical report on the results of the medical examination, both physical and mental, for each Applicant for Candidacy. The report shall include a statement on whether the Applicant for Candidacy is affected by a physical or mental disorder that undermines his/her ability to discharge the functions of the President of the Republic." In order to qualify for the elections, candidates must receive endorsements from a minimum of 20 MPs, or 25,000 citizens from at least 15 governorates, with at least 1,000 endorsements from each governorate. The presidential elections are set to take place 26-28 March, with a possible run-off scheduled for 24-26 April. If no run-offs are necessary, the winner will be announced on 2 April. Several other people have also announced their candidacy for president, including the former army chief-of-staff Sami Anan, prominent rights lawyer Khaled Ali, and lawyer and Zamalek Sporting Club chairman Mortada Mansour.

Egypt's army has arrested its former chief of staff and presidential hopeful Sami Anan, a top aide from his presidential campaign told media. The Supreme Committee of the Armed Forces (SCAF) in Egypt has accused Sami of committing violations that "warrant official investigation". In a statement released on Tuesday, SCAF said that the 69-year-old, who announced his candidacy for the presidential elections in March on Sunday, had forged official documents to end his military service and did not obtain the army's approval to run.

Egypt’s public prosecutor has closed a case against former supply minister Khaled Hanafi for corruption in wheat buying, judicial sources said, clearing him of charges related to a high profile scandal that rocked the world’s biggest grain buyer.A memo from the prosecutor’s office said the case raised against Hanafi had been closed as of Dec. 12, 2017, and that criminal accusations relating to misuse of public funds had been dropped. Hanafi was in charge of the country’s state grain buyer, the General Authority for Supply Commodities (GASC), when a parliamentary investigation in 2016 suggested that millions of dollars intended to subsidize farmers were used to purchase wheat that did not exist.

Egypt's Foreign Ministry announced on Monday that it had received an official invitation from Russia to participate in the Syrian National Dialogue Congress, which will be held in the Russian city of Sochi in late January. In the statement, Egyptian foreign ministry spokesperson Ahmed Abu Zaid said that Egypt had accepted the invitation to participate in the conference's discussions on how to achieve a political solution and end to the crisis in Syria. Egypt has maintained its full support for finding a political solution that upholds the Syrian people's freedom of choice and also preserves the Syrian national state. Around 1,500 participants representing various Syrian political forces are expected to take part in the January event. In addition, the talks will be attended by observers, primarily from the UN. The congress will be tasked with, among other things, setting up a commission to draft a new Syrian constitution. More»

Former presidential candidate and leftist figure Hamdeen Sabahi has signed an election endorsement in favour of lawyer and labour activist Khaled Ali, supporting his bid to run in Egypt's upcoming presidential elections, Ali's campaign said in a brief statement on Sunday. Ali declared his intention to run for the presidency at a Cairo press conference earlier this month, calling on his supporters to collect the minimum required 25,000 citizen endorsements to support his bid. Article 142 of Egypt’s 2014 constitution states that a hopeful presidential candidate must secure the recommendation of at least 20 MPs or 25,000 citizens from 15 governorates, with a minimum of 1,000 from each governorate. Endorsements must be submitted to the National Elections Authority (NEA) by 29 January. Until now, only current President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has managed to fulfill the requirements for running in the upcoming elections, having secured the endorsement of over 500 sitting MPs and exceded the required citizens' endorsements from many Egyptian governorates. Sisi announced his candidacy for a second term during a national conference on Friday. Khaled Ali is currently awaiting a final verdict on a three-month jail sentence handed down for offending public decency after making an "obscene hand gesture" during a demonstration outside the State Council headquarters in January 2017. The final verdict in the case is set to be issued on 7 March. If the guilty verdict is upheld, Ali will be disqualified from the presidential race in accordance with Article 1 of the 2017 elections law, which prevents anyone convicted of a felony or a crime involving an "immoral act" from running for the presidency. Both Ali and Sabahi have run in previous presidential elections. Ali ran for president in the first round of the 2012 elections but received only 134,056 votes. Sabahi came third with 4.8 millions votes, or 20.7 percent, behind former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq, who came in second place, and Islamist candidate Mohamed Morsi, who won the presidency in 2012. President El-Sisi, whose first term ends in June, won the 2014 elections in a landslide victory, receiving nearly 97 percent of the vote over sole competitor Hamdeen Sabahi. The NEA will publish the preliminary list of candidates on 31 January in the Al-Ahram and Al-Akhbar newspapers. More»

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said Friday he will seek reelection as a second term as president in the 2018 elections. Sisi announced his candidacy after the 'Story of a Nation' conference in the capital Cairo, where he highlighted his achievements over the past four years. Egypt’s presidential elections are scheduled to take place from March 26 to 28. A former army general, al-Sisi came to power in 2014. He played a leading role in Egypt’s 2013 military coup, which saw the ouster and imprisonment of the country’s first freely elected leader, Mohamed Morsi. Meanwhile, Egypt’s former military chief of staff Sami Anan early Saturday announced his presidential bid. In a video posted on his social Facebook account, Anan said he will run in the upcoming elections to "save Egypt." As a graduate of the Air Defense Faculty, Anan participated in the October 1973 war between Egypt and Israel, before moving through the military ranks. He later became commander of the air defense forces, being appointed chief of staff in 2005. More»

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi stated on Thursday that the reform and the development of education in Egypt requires 220 billion Egyptian pounds, saying that young people are the backbone of the country. Sisi explained that Egypt’s educational accommodates 22 million people, and that if the country was to spend 10,000 pounds on each student every year, “then we will need 220 billion pounds,” Sisi said, before saying those funds “don’t exist.” On the second day of the Hekyat Watan’ [Nation’s story] conference, in which Sisi shared with Egyptians achievements made in his first presidential term, he went on to emphasize that Egypt will do its best go achieve the highest level of safety in its airports and touristic destinations. Sisi remarks came during the session describing the national projects and infrastructure-building, as part of the itinerary of events for the conference’s second day. The conference will continue until Friday, with a number of ministers attending the final day dialogue, led by acting Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly. More»

Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said in a speech at the 'Story of a Nation' event that 11,000 national projects have been implemented in the country over the past four years, with an average of three projects a day, worth 2 trillion pounds. The Story of a Nation event, which started on Wednesday evening and is set to continue for three days, is being held at Cairo Masah Hotel under the auspices of the president. Sisi presented a balance sheet on the achievements and projects implemented during the past four years and the challenges facing the country. The president said that the state has been fighting to combat slum proliferation, building 25,000 housing units to provide safe housing in place of slums. Overall, a total of 600,000 housing units worth 100 billion pounds have been constructed; and roads and bridges have been built at a cost of over 85 billion pounds, the president said. Sisi said that the energy generation capacity of the High Dam has been increased 12-fold, and that total energy production has been increased eight-fold. The president said that the expansion of the Suez Canal, which took place soon after Sisi took office in 2014, marked the start of the national projects in the country over the past four years. The president, who has not yet decided whether to run for a second term in the March presidential elections, stressed that he was presenting the balance sheet out of a duty to inform the country of his achievements over the past four years regardless of all other considerations.
