CAIRO – 22 March 2018: A set of renowned Egyptian celebrities and politicians starred in a promotional video to encourage citizens into taking part in the upcoming presidential election.

”He made us all believe that our dreams could come true,” Actor Rami Wahid said.
The celebrities affirmed they are voting for Sisi for a second term. “Vote,” “Participate,” “Stand by your country,” were the words directed in the video to Egyptians across the country.
”Four years ago, we all headed to the presidential election ballots, we all gave our votes to President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi for the presidency of Egypt,” Noted actor Ahmed Abdel Aziz said. “Many accomplishments took place during those four years, I’ll not discuss them all, I’ll only mention one of them, which is the inflation rate that went down from 25% to 13%, this implies a more powerful economy.”
