CAIRO, EGYPT Former Egyptian army chief Abdel Fattah el-Sissi secured a landslide victory in the country's presidential vote last week, the election commission confirmed on Tuesday.
Turnout was about 47 percent of Egypt's 54 million voters, the commission said - less than the 40 million votes, or 80 percent of the electorate, that Sissi had called for.

will obama attend gen sisi’s inauguration?
Dictators are the pinnacle of middle eastern governance. Sisi is probably the best we could hope for in Egypt.
It’s funny that Morsi got, what, 54% of the vote? I’m thinking Egypt is finished with democracy. The fact they faked such a ridiculous number means they want everyone to know that democracy is over.
In 2012, Morsi got a total of 12,347,380 votes.
Sounds like the ‘rat vote in east St. Louis.
Strongman governments are the best Islam can offer its people. Without strongman governments to control the population and islam you get islamic governments. More freedom for the people historically with the strongman....isn't islam lovely.
At least we now share something with Egypt: we both have sissies as president.
Roger that. Strongman governments are therefore in our national interests, since Islamic governments ain’t exactly sane. That’s why the whole “Arab spring” thing was such a disaster.
American leaders used to be smart enough to understand that “democracy” and “Islam” is a bad, bad combination. The Moron-in-Chief? Not so much.
