Egyptian military denies report that el-Sissi to run

CAIRO--Egypt's military says the nation's top soldier will, if he decides to run for president, announce his intention in an address to the "glorious people of Egypt," not through a third party.

Military Spokesman Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali was responding to comments attributed by a Kuwaiti daily to Field Marshal Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi that he had made up his mind to run for president.

El-Sissi is widely expected to run for president, but he has yet to announce his candidacy. Speculations are rife that he will do so in a televised address to the nation later this month.

The spokesman described what Kuwait's al-Seyassah attributed to el-Sissi as the daily's own "interpretation" and not "direct comments" by the military chief.
