Egypt's army chief General Abdel Fatah al-Sisi gave his clearest signal yet on Saturday of his interest in becoming president, a move that could turn the clock back to the days when the presidency was controlled by men from the military.Sisi, who ousted Egypt's first democratically elected leader Mohamed Mursi last July after mass protests against his one-year rule, is widely expected to seek the top job but has not yet announced plans to run.After the army overthrew the Islamist Mursi, it appointed an interim president and outlined a roadmap for democratic transition.There is little doubt the popular Sisi would win the presidential election.
