Egyptian lawmakers have approved constitutional changes that will allow President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to stay in power until 2030.
Sisi was due to stand down in 20-22, when his second four-year term ends. But the amendments would lengthen his current term to six years and allow him to stand for one more. The changes will also give Sisi more control over the country’s judiciary. The proposed reforms must now be put to a referendum within 30 days. A former army chief, Sisi stormed to the presidency in 2014, a year after having led the military in toppling former President Mohamed Morsi.
