First Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister General Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi called on the Egyptians to shoulder their responsibility and take part powerfully in the upcoming referendum on the draft constitution to correct the democratic path and build the new democratic state.
In a symposium on Saturday 11/1/2014, Sisi said that Egypt is at the threshold of a crucial stage of its history that the whole world awaits for its results to implement the first steps of the future roadmap after two great revolutions that inspired the world.
Sisi has urged the Armed Forces personnel to be fully aware at the current stage and take all the required measures to protect citizens and provide a safe climate for them to express their opinions freely during the voting process.
General Sisi said that protecting the State is the responsibility of the army, stressing that the Armed Forces and police will not allow harming the Egyptian citizens and will firmly stand up against all those tampering with Egypt's future.
The symposium was attended by the army Chief of Staff Lieutenant General Sedki Sobhi, Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim and Head of the constitutional panel Amr Moussa.
