"President Sisi will answer a group of these inquiries during his monthly speech," said the presidency.

Sisi believes that "transparency and popular participation in decision-making represent the most important way in the development course Egypt is going through".

As then-military chief, Sisi led the removal of former Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 following mass protests against Morsi and his currently-outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group.

Enjoying massive popularity, president Sisi came to office in mid-2014 after a landslide victory over his leftist opponent Hamdeen Sabahy.
