Monday، 18 December 2023 - 06:41 PM

“In the Name of Allah, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful”

The great people of Egypt,

I address you today, filled with joy and overwhelmed by the sight of your line-up and commitment to the voter queues in the presidential election. It was a vigorous testament, for all observers both inside and outside of the country, to the vitality and resilience of all Egyptians across the vibrant kaleidoscope of society, demonstrating that the will of the Egyptian people is enforced with the voice of every Egyptian man and woman.

This scene, that I have followed closely, evokes a deep sense of appreciation and immense gratitude to every Egyptian who participated in this momentous event amidst this critical circumstance, as the state is grappling with a multitude of challenges across all levels. Those include primarily, this war that is raging on our eastern borders, which necessitates committing all our efforts to halting its relentless advance, given the grave threat it poses to Egypt’s national security, in particular, and the Palestinian issue, in general.

It was as if the line-up of the Egyptian people was a vote for the whole world, that resonated with their powerful rejection of this inhumane war; not just a vote to elect their president for a presidential term. It was a sophisticated and civilized scene, that marked the culmination of the collaborative efforts by the state, the government and the people, to deliver this dignified image, devoid of any transgressions or security violations, despite the unprecedented scope of the crowds.


The sons and daughters of Egypt,

Just as I have always been with you, I tell you honestly: I am fully aware of the magnitude of the challenges that we have faced and are still encountering. I reiterate my conviction that the true hero defying these challenges is the great Egyptian citizen, who has stood up to terrorism and its violence, endured the economic reforms and their impacts, and persevered through crises with steadfastness, awareness and wisdom.

With you, I rekindle the covenant to dedicate every effort to continue, together, building the New Republic that we strive to establish, guided by our shared vision; a democratic State that embraces its sons and daughters, governed by an unwavering commitment to upholding the law and constitution and that moves firmly and steadfastly toward modernity and growth on the basis of science and technology, while maintaining its identity, culture and heritage, making the advancement of the human being its foremost priority, and seeking to provide him with a decent life.

It possesses military, political, and economic capabilities that safeguard its national security and the gains of its people. This is the Egypt we all dream of and these are the Egyptians who are hopeful about building a great homeland.

I will be their voice, defend their dream for Egypt. We will continue our national dialogue more effectively and practically, benefiting from the rich experience of the electoral process that produced diverse ideas and visions, resulting from the diversity of the candidates and their political orientations.

I wholeheartedly extend my due greetings to all the competing candidates for the great work that have done and fine political performance that pave the way for a vibrant and diverse political life.


Dear sons and daughters of Egypt,

My pride in you is infinite.  Choosing me for the mission of leading the country is a responsibility that I bear faithfully before God Almighty and before you and history will bear witness to it.

My pride increased as I witnessed the masses of the Egyptian people express themselves, in the forefront were the youth of Egypt, expressing themselves and the vitality of Egypt and its future.

As usual and as promised, the Egyptian women once again proved they were the voice of the national conscience, demonstrating the steadfastness and solidity of our nation. Also, Egypt’s workers and farmers were a model of awareness and will and confirmed once again that they are the shapers of the future, and the sowers of hope. I would also like to thank Egypt's army, police, and judiciary who secured and supervised this national epic to emerge in a manner that we were proud to see.

As I conclude, I would like to confirm that as I promised you I am an Egyptian man who grew up in an authentic ancient Egyptian neighborhood. I belong to the military institution. In my mission that you have assigned me, I have nothing but working with and for you.

I spare no effort, and only strive to please Allah Almighty and fulfill your hopes and aspirations.

Entrusting me to lead the nation is a responsibility, for which I ask Allah to grant me success in bearing with impartiality.

Let us work together for our dear Egypt.

With the strength of its people and their national alignment, always and forever:

Long live Egypt .. Long live Egypt .. Long live Egypt.

May Allah’s Peace and Blessings be Upon You.
