Egypt is not “going to elect a dictator,” Former Foreign Minister Amr Moussa told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Monday as Egyptians went to the polls. Former Egyptian military chief Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is expected to win the presidency. “We are not going to elect a dictator,” Moussa said. “We are going to elect a president under the stipulations of a constitution.” His comments came in response to a statement by el-Sisi’s sole opponent, Hamdeen Sabahi, that if elected he would release “all the innocent people who were convicted according to this unconstitutional law” – referring to a controversial demonstration law enacted last year. “He said I am going to release all innocent people, meaning that he’s not going to release the non-innocent people,” Moussa said. “And who determined that? Only the courts can determine that.”
