Egypt military council discussing Sisi's political fate

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt’s top military council is discussing the public’s request for army chief Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to run for president, the state news agency said on Monday.

Sisi, who toppled Egypt’s first democratically-elected president last year, is expected to announce his candidacy for the presidency within days and to easily win elections due within six months.
