In Egypt, spontaneous demonstrations took place in several cities including the capital Cairo. This is the first time since President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi came to power.
Several protesters took Egypt’s streets mainly Cairo, demanding President al-Sissi departure from power. They denounce repeated acts of corruption at the top of the state. According to Hespress, fewer other demonstrations took place in Alexandria, Suez, Al-Mahalla and Damietta in the Nile Delta. It was on the call of the Muslim Brotherhood that these rallies took place. Leaders of this movement are in exile in Spain and Turkey. (English)
According to the same source, the protesters were quickly dispersed by the police. Recently, the head of state defended himself against any act of corruption and reassured his fellow citizens. Since the 2013 Popular Revolution, this is the first time that protesters have taken streets to demand the departure of President al-Sissi. A military man by profession, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ousted his predecessor Mohamed Morsi from power in 2013 before being elected in the 2014 election.
