Sisi's ambitions questioned in leaked audio

Recording shows ex-Egypt PM saying entire election process will be jeopardised if military chief runs for president.

    Ahmed Shafik, one of Egypt's most prominent politicians, has allegedly questioned military chief Abdel Fattah el-Sisi's political aspirations.

    A pro-Muslim Brotherhood channel leaked the recording, which it says is of the former prime minister. In it, Shafik allegedly says that if Sisi runs for president, the entire election process will be jeopardised.

    Samer Shehata, an associate professor of eastern politics at the University of Oklahoma, USA, talks to Al Jazeera about the development.
