Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi says he does not favor amending the constitution to extend term limits, but appeared to leave open the possibility of his staying in power beyond two four-year terms.Sisi was elected to office in 2014, a year after he led the military's ouster of a freely elected but divisive president, the Islamist Mohammad Morsi of the now-outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. Sisi's comments, made in an interview with CNBC television that aired late Monday, were his first to publicly detail his thoughts on the constitutional clause limiting presidents to eight years in office.Egypt has been ruled by men of military background like Sisi for all but about two years since a group of young officers seized power 65 years ago in a coup that toppled the monarchy.
