Egyptian army chief Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi was meeting military leaders on Wednesday to tell them he was resigning as defense minister to run for the presidency, the state-run Al-Ahram newspaper reported on its website.
The army deposed President Mohamed Morsi last year after mass protests against his rule and Sisi is widely expected to win the election. He must resign as defense minister and from the army to run.
Sisi, 59, is popular among Egyptians who supported the army's decision to remove Morsi from power one year into his term. But he is reviled by the Islamist opposition which sees him as the mastermind of a coup against an elected leader and the author of a crackdown on dissent.
