The former Director of the Military Intelligence and Scouting Agency is, at 58 years old, one of the youngest members of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces. He was born in 1954, while his predecessor, Hussein Tantawi, was commissioned as an officer soon after in 1956.
He also studied one year in the US (Pennsylvania)
Al-Sisi’s appointment came after President Mohamed Morsy announced he had retired Tantawi. Al-Sisi took the oath of office in front of Morsy soon after.
