Egyptian Presidents – level 1

26-04-2019 15:00

People are presidents for terms. In Egypt, one term is four years. The Egyptian people change this.

The people vote. They change the Egyptian law. Now, one Egyptian presidential term is six years long. One person can be president for two terms.

Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi is the Egyptian President now. He is in his second term.

For him, there are special new laws. He can be president for a third term. People can vote for him in 2024. He can be president until 2030.

Difficult words: term (the length of time when somebody is president), vote (say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to a new law), law (a document which says what people can and must not do).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
