CAIRO: The Muslim Brotherhood issued a statement, Wednesday, saying that Sisi has forgotten that there is a legitimate president during his statements on running for president.
The statement came in response to Minister of Defense Abdel Fatah al-Sisi’s speech on Tuesday, in which he added to the speculation as to his possible candidacy in the upcoming presidential elections.
In the statement, published on the IkhwanOnline website, the Brotherhood accused the Sisi of deceiving the people in order to achieve his own interests and ambitions. The statement pointed to Sisi’s claims that he would not turn his back on the people and their desires, stating that “all dictators have made this false claim.”
The statement also read, “The leader of the bloody coup made a speech yesterday, overlooking the blood of martyrs whom he murdered in the brutal massacres he committed.”
