In hindsight, it seems that lots has happened since my last Egypt post but most of what I hoped for hasn't come to reality. The Supreme military council has dismantled both houses of the parliament, put a dozen so of the regimes oligarchs under investigation, and has promised to lead the country for around 6 months until a democratic government is elected. So really the people of Egypt have 6 months to:
- Write and ratify a new constitution
- Setup parties, political programs and organizations
- Elect 1 or 2 houses of parliament
- Elect a president
- Transfer of power back
Now to me these seem like highly complex and very important tasks, I am personally worried that we will end up making emotional decisions rather than rational decisions that help us move forward. More on that later!
