Lyse Doucet visits Cairo’s presidential palace for an exclusive interview with Egypt’s new strongman, President Abd-al-Fattah al-Sisi. After spending four decades in the military, he came to power in elections last year after the controversial ousting of the elected Muslim Brotherhood. He says he has a roadmap for democracy. But not everyone is convinced. What are his plans for his own country? What about Egypt’s wider role in the region? And, will the threat from the so-called Islamic State continue to grow?

Dictator or not, he has a very soothing voice

Everyone in the comments have very short term memory. Less than ten years ago, arabs tried "democracy". It doesn't work. It barely works in the west and is very unefficient.

ان التطرف الإسلامي قضي علي السياحة والصناعة والاقتصاد وهذا ما حصل في بلاد إسلامية كثيرة ولا بد من القضاء عليه وتصبح المواطنة بناء علي العمل الصالح للوطن وليس لمجموعة محدودة بزعامة دينية أو عرقية فهذا هو كان الساس لتقدم الشعوب. فان الدين هو لله إنما الوطن للجميع ومن يخرج عن هذا فهو ضد التقدم وأنانية مجموعة ضد المجتمع
Egypt is a poor country caused by terrorism ,tourism ,economic development was crippling it .development can not start as long as Islamic Militancy and terrorism controlled ,fanatic Islamic terrorism has to be controlled and crushed so economy and stability can start .

Dictators always ask ''Why don't you ask me about something else?'' when confronted over unjust imprisonment.

Mr Yasay said the Philppines would make its own foreign policy decisions
