FILE - This Sept. 14, 2013, file photo shows chocolates decorated with pictures of Egyptian Defense Minister Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi displayed for sale in a shop in Cairo. Having secured victory in a referendum on a relatively liberal constitution that he championed, insiders say Egypt's military chief is turning his attention to the country’s overwhelming array of problems _ from health and education to government subsidies and investment. The head of Egypt’s military, Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, is riding on a wave of popular fervor that is almost certain to carry him to election as president. Unknown only two years ago, a broad sector of Egyptians now hail him as the nation’s savior after he ousted the Islamists from power, and the state-backed personality cult around him is so eclipsing, it may be difficult to find a candidate to oppose him if he runs. Still, if he becomes president, he faces the tough job of ruling a deeply divided nation that has already turned against two leaders.(AP Photo/Khalil Hamra, File)
