Cartoon by Carlos | Pyramid Scheme

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi prepares for a long reign, with the help of a tame national parliament.

In this week’s cartoon by Carlos, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi prepares for a long reign, with the help of a tame national parliament that has voted to amend the constitution to allow him to rule until 2030.

Citizens can block the move in a referendum currently under way – but with state repression increasing and democratic freedoms in tatters, el-Sisi has a good chance of winning that vote too.

The 2011 Tahrir Square revolution has been tragically betrayed.
