CAIRO – 6 June 2018: “In the coming period, we will focus on education and health reform as well as the administrative reform of the state, while continuing to take the reform measures we started in the past four years, President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi said during the Egyptian Family Iftar ceremony held on Tuesday.

Sisi clarified that the reform measures will be implemented after a very thorough study, adding that education is one of the most important pillars of Egypt's progress.

Huge national projects will be inaugurated in Egypt after Eid al-Fitr, President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi added.

President Sisi also said, “I have great hope that the country will witness huge changes within the next two years.”

He thanked all Egyptians for enduring the “difficult economic procedures taken by the government during the past period. “All the Egyptians deserve to be thanked for what they did.”

He also talked about the previous presidential election that that took place between March 26 and 28, saying that Egyptian’s participation came as a strong message to everyone inside and outside the country.

In the same context, MP Osama Abul Majd told Egypt Today that Egypt will witness a huge reform in education and health sectors in the second presidential term of President Sisi, adding that developing the education system will require intensive efforts.

On Saturday July 3, the Parliament witnessed the swearing-in ceremony for Sisi’s second term in the presidency. According to the 2014 constitution, the newly elected president must take the oath before a special session of Parliament before his presidential term officially starts.

The event was the first of its kind in the Egyptian Parliament since former President Hosni Mubarak took the oath in 2005. Sisi’s first oath was performed at the Constitutional Court in 2014.

Sisi garnered 97.08 percent of valid votes in the 2018 presidential election, where more than 21.8 million people voted for him. His hardly-known competitor, Al-Ghad Party chairperson Moussa Moustafa Moussa, received 656,534 votes, making up 2.9 percent of the valid ballots.
