The 25 January 2011 uprising ended the 30-year reign of autocrat Hosni Mubarak.
The 30 June 2013 mass protests lead to the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.
El-Sisi`s statement came after a court dropped charges of conspiracy to murder protesters against Hosni Mubarak, his interior minister Habib El-Adly and six security aides.
Mubarak and business tycoon Hussein Salem were also acquitted of corruption charges.
Many observers said the verdict was a sign Mubarak regime figures are regaining ground in Egyptian political life.
Critics said the media played a role in paving the way for the verdict by tainting the image of the January 25 uprising.
In a meeting with young journalists on Tuesday, El-Sisi also said he would amend the criminal law in an attempt to fight corruption and preserve public money.
El-Sisi voiced support for a new political party that includes the youth and would “help them express their aspirations.”
