CAIRO, May 5 -- Egyptian ex-military chief and presidential candidate Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi said Monday that there will be no future for the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood if he wins in the upcoming presidential elections.
"There will be nothing called the Muslim Brotherhood in my presidential term," he said while being asked if voting for him means the end of the group. The comments were the clearest indication from the army-backed authorities although the group has been sharply attacked since last July.
The Islamist movement, from which ousted president Mohamed Morsi hailed, is currently blacklisted by the interim leadership as "a terrorist organization." Morsi was removed by Sisi's army last July in response to mass protests agains
