Meanwhile, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Egyptian Prime Minister Hazem El-Beblawi said of Sisi:
“Sisi is under popular pressure to run. This is like De Gaulle, like Eisenhower,” he said, referring to the French and US war heroes who later took political office.
“Those that are pushing Sisi to run are not the military camps, they are people in the streets, women in the first place,” Beblawi said.
“Don’t forget he is a handsome man,” he added.Meanwhile, Interim President Adly Mansour was telling a Police Convocation gathered for Police Day that "The Police State is Over." That may come as news to Amr Hamzawy, Emad Shahin, Alaa Abdel Fattah and other critics now jailed or facing charges.
