Andrea Teti, ECIA Senior Fellow, and Sarah Hynek argues on OpenDemocracy that the Presidential frontrunner and former military chief Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi can rely at present on considerable public support. But this support appears to be less substantial than the Egyptian media machine projects, and will not last unless he is able to address Egypt’s deep economic, political and social problems.
