Egypt election: Media depicts Sisi cult personality

The Listening Post looks at the way the Egyptian media is covering the upcoming presidential election and its role in generating a narrative of national security threats against Egypt.

    Egyptians head to the polls on Monday in a presidential race pitting the incumbent Abdel Fattah el-Sisi against El Ghad party chairperson, Moussa Mostafa Moussa. The vote comes seven years on from the revolution that ended the three-decades-long presidency of Hosni Mubarak.
