CAIRO (AA) - Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said Friday he will contest the 2018 elections to seek his second term as president.

Al-Sisi announced his candidacy after the 'Story of a Nation' conference in the capital Cairo, where he highlighted his achievements over the past four years.

Egypt’s presidential elections are scheduled to take place from March 26 to 28.

A former army general, al-Sisi came to power in 2014.

He played a leading role in Egypt’s 2013 military coup, which saw the ouster and imprisonment of the country’s first freely elected leader, Mohamed Morsi.
