This paper examines the main headlines of the Egyptian public service discourse through addressing the official discourse of Egyptian officials during the period of Al-Sisi’s rule, exploring the message that the regime emphasizes in various speeches and statements both at home and abroad, and how far the official speeches and actual policies applied on the ground are consistent.

The study seeks to answer the following questions: To what extent has the public service discourse during the era of Sisi expressed the aspirations of the citizen’s life? And to what extent is the official discourse consistent with the actual policies? Is the public service discourse at home the same as that directed abroad?
