Abdel Fattah El-Sisi overthrew the first democratically elected president in Egypt's history. He soon portrayed himself as the man who would save the country as it was facing what many of his supporters said it was a threat from the Muslim Brotherhood.

But has any of those promises been met during his first year in power? And is Egypt better under his rule?
