FILE – In this July 22, 2013, file photo released by the Egyptian Presidency, Egypt’s interim President Adly Mansour, left, standing next to Defense Minister Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, listens to the national anthem during a medal ceremony at a military base east of Cairo. The head of Egypt’s military, Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, is riding on a wave of popular fervor that is almost certain to carry him to election as president. Unknown only two years ago, a broad sector of Egyptians now hail him as the nation’s savior after he ousted the Islamists from power, and the state-backed personality cult around him is so eclipsing, it may be difficult to find a candidate to oppose him if he runs. Still, if he becomes president, he faces the tough job of ruling a deeply divided nation that has already turned against two leaders.(AP Photo/Sheriff Abd El Minoem, Egyptian Presidency, File)
