Gen Abdulfattah al-Sisi could be Egypt's Eisenhower: The Telegraph
Mustafa Higazy, the strategic adviser to Egypt's interim presidential authority, told the Daily Telegraph that Gen Abdul-Fattah al-Sisi could be Egypt’s next president, however al-Sisi himself doesn’t prefer to run for the presidency.
 
He added: "Gen Sisi is not into the political process, he is very much a military figure, but if the right leadership does not emerge by the time the election is due he might come forward," the former businessman and consultant said. "Gen Sisi is an icon and if on the side of the people they want him in this iconic role why not?
 
"Let's see how things develop in a natural way but Gen Sisi could be Egypt's Gen Eisenhower in the end."
