#EgyptElections2018: President Sisi Warn Opposition Against Boycotts

 Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el Sisi has fired a strong warning to his opponents and alleged elements trying to destabilize the country as it prepares for the March 26-28 elections.

The warning came a day after some opposition politicians and other figures called on voters to boycott the upcoming elections which they have described as a farce.

"There will be … measures against anyone who believes he can mess with (Egypt's) security ... ," President Sisi said at ceremony marking the launch of a giant offshore gas field.

"Whoever wants to mess with Egypt's security and wreck it must get rid of me first because by God Almighty I will not allow it. I would die so that 100 million can live," he added.

President Sisi will face Ghad Party leader Mousa Mostafa Mousa in the March Presidential polls. Several opposition candidates have withdrawn from the race over concerns of harassment and intimidation by the ruling regime.
