Cairo [Egypt] January 20 (ANI): Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has announced that he will run for a second term in the country's presidential elections which are scheduled to take place in March.
The conference saw ministers and members of the public discuss issues including completed infrastructure projects, the military's counter-terrorism efforts, foreign policy and the war on drugs.
"Your participation in the election will be a strong message," before jokingly adding that Egyptians would "become exhausted with me again because Egypt needs every sacrifice," Al Jazeera reported, the Egyptian President as saying, in a speech aired live on TV.
The 63-year-old Sisi, who has spent his first four years in power, came into the limelight in 2013 after leading the army's ouster of his Islamist predecessor Mohamed Mursi amid mass protests.(ANI)
