Sisi Calls for Big Turnout in Presidential Election

Former Egyptian army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Sunday called for a big turnout in next month’s presidential election, according to Reuters.

Sisi, who deposed the Muslim Brotherhood’s President, Mohammed Morsi, after mass protests against his rule last July, faces only one competitor in the May 26-27 election - leftist Hamdeen Sabahi.
