OK, Who Saw This Coming? Sisi Reportedly Says He Will Run.

Well, if this surprises you you haven't been paying attention: Sisi reportedly tells Kuwait's Al-Siyasa that he will run for President.

Ahram Online is quoting it, and it's not clear why he'd tell the Kuwaitis first (well, maybe it is on reflection), but even if it's still not official, no surprises here.

[UPDATE: The Army is denying it's official. Sort of, anyway.]
