The Egyptian President takes the constitutional oath

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi was sworn in before the House of Representatives for a new six-year term that begins on Wednesday, according to what state television reported.
After the Speaker of the Egyptian Parliament, Hanafi El-Gebali, opened the Council session with the decision of the National Elections Authority that Al-Sisi won the last presidential race, Al-Sisi read the text of the oath for his third term in front of those present at the new headquarters of the House of Representatives in the Administrative Capital, east of Cairo.
On December 18, the National Elections Authority announced that Sisi had won 89.6% of the votes in the presidential race he ran with three candidates.
After taking the oath, Sisi addressed the Egyptians in a speech in which he pledged to “renew my pledge to complete the process of building the nation,” stressing that Egypt is surrounded by crises.
The president pledged that “I will remain loyal to my work… my eyes only see your interests and the interests of this country.”
The swearing-in comes as Egypt, with a population of approximately 106 million, a third of whom live below the poverty line, faces one of the worst economic crises in its history.
Egypt is also facing the geopolitical consequences of two open conflicts on its borders: the war between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, and the conflict in Sudan to the south.
