    (ANSAmed) - CAIRO - Former army chief Abdel Fattah El-Sisi said in his first televised interview on Monday evening that the Muslim Brotherhood would cease to exist if he were elected in the May 26-27 elections. In response to a question on whether the movement was ''done with'', Sisi said that ''I haven't eliminated it, but you Egyptians have.'' Replying to a journalist on whether this meant that under his presidency the Muslim Brotherhood would no longer exist, he answered affirmatively. Sisi added that the controversial protest law ''must be enforced''. ''These protests happening every day cannot be allowed, and the State would fall into chaos without this law,'' he said. On the possibility of granting amnesty to activist detainees, the former armed forces chief added that ''this is an issue for the judiciary, but it can be put to discussion in the future'', implying that it may be a possibility.
