President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi said Thursday his government had fulfilled its promises during his first term and called on Egyptians to vote in large numbers in an election where he is seeking a second term in office.Sisi won nearly 97 percent of the vote in 2014, but less than half of eligible Egyptians voted even though the election was extended to three days.Sisi also told a conference of military officers and relatives of soldiers killed in action that his first four years in office had brought stability and security after the tumult which followed the popular uprising of 2011 .The ex-general overthrew Egypt's first democratically elected President Mohammad Morsi in 2013 after huge protests against Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood rule, before standing for election the following year.
