If the President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi had asked me to cut off my head, I will do, Egyptian parliamentarian, Mostafa Bakry, said yesterday.
Speaking at a mass conference supporting Al-Sisi, Bakry called on all citizens to participate in the country’s presidential election due next week.
“I swear if Sisi asked me to cut off my head for Egypt, I will cut it off,” Bakry sworn.
No one can doubt patriotism of the Egyptians whom have confronted the Muslim Brotherhood,
On his part, the Member of Parliament (MP) and former sports minister, Taher Abouzeid, said that Sisi has succeeded in eliminating what he described as “a planned destructive chaos,” adding that “he had accomplished numerous achievements that deserve our respect and support.”
Local and international rights groups recently condemned Egypt’s March presidential election last week, saying the race would neither be free nor fair.
Politicians say that the Egyptian authorities have manipulated the upcoming elections to guarantee a win for Al-Sisi, who now faces only an obscure politician who supports him as an adversary. But the country’s electoral commission has pledged to run the vote “according to principles of independence, transparency and objectivity.”
