Egypt: Proud and jittery as El-Sisi begins second term

  • Egypt’s top priority and achievement under President El-Sisi is economic reform
  • Efforts to eradicate jihadi terrorism in the Sinai have been less successful
  • New threats from the south and east could still drag Egypt into regional conflicts

Egyptians love to call their country “Oum Eddinia” – “Mother of the World.” With a population nearing 100 million and the largest Arab army in the Middle East, Egypt should be playing a central role in that troubled region. President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi has chosen another path.

He believes economic development is the key to sustainable national greatness. While striving to achieve his goal, he made the strategic decision to focus on immediate and proximate security threats to his country and not let himself get involved in military conflicts beyond his borders. Reelected to another four-year term in March 2018 with 97 percent of the vote, he is not expected to deviate from this path.
