Heikal: Sisi faces unsettled atmosphere

Veteran writer Mohamed Hassanein Heikal said President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi faces “a general unsettled atmosphere,” adding that “We cannot do anything else other than he achieves full success.”
In an interview aired on the privately-owned CBC TV channel on Friday, Heikal said that “President Sisi needs a vision that is wider than projects to propose for the people.”
“Whoever attacks 30 June [revolution] depicts it as return to Mubarak’s regime,” Heikal said, adding that “25 January was a real revolution.”
He indicated some elements manipulated it, pointing to mistakes by the military council during the revolution which made the Brotherhood take control of it.
He also added that the “denial of 25 January cancels 30 June, in which people restored what was achieved on 25 January.”
“Revolution was not a ready-made book, however, it was a historical change that needs time. The problem is that we find the right path after the sacrifice,” he said
