8:16 am
although opted for the has since he was only named president in june two thousand and fourteen the former army general has been in control of egypt since july the previous year when he led a coup deposing the country's first democratically elected presidents mohamed morsi since taking power sisi has made numerous promises and pledges to the egyptian people in a bid to win their support first he vowed to defeat what he described as potential violence in terrorism. i call in all egyptians to take to the streets to task me with preventing the potential violence and terrorism that threatens us. in reality however since sisi became president attacks and bombings appear to have increased dramatically across the country i saw which did not have a branch in egypt recruited fighters and began killing soldiers and police officers in sinai but the violence was not limited to the peninsula car bombs in central cairo and alexandria are testament to cc's inability to deliver on his promise of
8:17 am
security another pledge made by the army general was to build a national road network that would connect cities and help improve road safety i would i will build a world class road network within one year that will connect all of egypt. four years have now passed not only does egypt have an extremely poor road network according to the world health organization it ranks amongst the ten worst countries for road safety with deaths being an almost daily occurrence. c.c. had also promised to drastically improve the economy and increase living standards there was initial hope when his government organized the two thousand and fifteen international economic conference billions of dollars worth of projects were announced until now though very little of those have been achieved even the much hill construction of a new administrative capital has seen little to no development similar to the pledge of building one million new homes with hundreds of thousands of egyptians
8:18 am
still either homeless or living in slums one promise that was fulfilled by sisi was the expansion of the suez canal however the promised revenue from this project has not materialized in fact after convincing the public to help fund the project through investment bonds the government's own figures show revenue from the suez canal has actually dropped as a result of the decline in maritime chaffetz says he has been president for four years and in power for five in the early days he had promised to transform egypt into a world power the reality is that he presides over a country where thirty percent live below the poverty line and the vast majority are struggling to remain just above it his critics doubts that another four years will bring any significant improvement. but the egyptian government's been cracking down on the media in the run up to this election hundreds of websites and blogs have been blogs but as
8:19 am
a pal reports that hasn't stopped the online conversation. it appears more egyptians have been busy discussing football and the arabic version of the t.v. program the voice then the presidential elections on monday but security certainly became a trending topic over the weekend after an attack on egypt's second city alexandria on saturday now at least two people were killed including a policeman in what the ministry of interior has called an assassination attempt of a local security official prime minister sharif ismail says such attacks will not affect the election process but security is high across egypt's major cities and more than thirteen thousand polling places and it remains a central issue in this campaign many twitter users outside of egypt are talking about the same thing with me sharing some critical pieces from the economist in the new york times which focused on the security dimensions of the election in the new york times asking why president sisi appears to be worried if the election is supposed to be a lock now the president has adopted
8:20 am
a more threatening tone in the final month of campaigning focusing on unspecified enemies while the economist says that sisi must provide security and jobs for young people if not there's a recipe for more upheaval down the road and while they like many of c.c. supporters say that his firm hand has prevented egypt from collapsing in recent years they say he should respect the constitution and ignore his most sycophantic supporters who want to amend the constitution to let him rule for life moves can you tell us to say that we did give me a loser you. and while a number of famous actors and singers have helped spread cc's message to nearly sixty million eligible voters to come down and participate many egyptians are wondering if their vote will even matter the hash tag why are you boycotting the elections was trending on the eve of the vote after seven political parties and one hundred fifty opposition figures denounced the process as a farce calling for a boycott one of the most popular posts from the former sisi supporters. compares
8:21 am
this choice whether to boycott or not to a. football match he says if the results are known in advance and the referee is bribed the fans would certainly boycott the match so we'll have to see if these security issues and the perceived lack of choice will have an impact on voter turnout remember that the last time sisi ran nearly half of eligible voters did turn out giving him nearly ninety seven percent of the vote. is this a see it professor of political science at long island university and she says the legitimacy of this election result will depend on turnout. we need enough to not lend some dignity in this election and so yes there was a forty seven percent or not last election but that really was twenty three million people a population of over nine ninety nine you answer the question is what is this state and what is this from seeing what of it what is this agenda really look like since president sisi has taken power we've seen sixty thousand political prisoners
8:22 am
rounded up the redeemed has built sixteen more prisons to put the population the generation that was dealing just in two thousand and eleven generation protest that is now deemed generation jailed by amnesty international there have been eight hundred thirty cases of torture two hundred fifty people have been disappeared so far this year the mass unfair trials the sweeping death sentences the closures of n.g.o.s the blocking the four hundred thirty four news websites and so what you're seeing is the consolidation of power around an individual not even a regime anymore an individual who's who's really fearful about maintaining a sense of legitimacy we are entering into an election tomorrow where the streets of cairo and alexandria and all over egypt are painted with the image of president the fact that the c.c. . historically the lessons we learned from the prime author tenure dreams in the past in central america was that all sarah tearing leaders actually painted town in
8:23 am
the in in their own image during an election not so much for the election but to remind the people of their power to remind people of i am the person i am the only individual i'm not just your savior but you have no real alternative because one of the economic conditions and easy quick like today with his sweeping austerity measures what you see it is thirty percent inflation two thirds of the population is under the age of twenty nine you have seventy percent and playing in some areas of pyro and so when there is no alternative even for individuals who need a heavy hand of clampdown especially during an election to say there is no alternative but presidencies. the united nations has called for an end to what it describes as a brutal war on children in yemen it says the number of severely malnourished children there has doubled during the three year civil war the conflict has also left half a million boys and girls unable to go to school saudi arabia and iran you about
