Questions For Egypt

  • How long will interim government under Adly Mansour continue; what role will army, under Gen Sisi play?
  • A new constitution likely to be evolved, how smoothly can that process be done?
  • When will new elections be held?
  • What happens if Morsi (top) and the Muslim Brotherhood, which has the best organisation, come back to power?
  • Will the Brotherhood be more accommodative, or more radical?

Curfews, deserted streets, tanks rolling out, and an eerie silence. That’s the image of a coup-in-progress worldwide. Yet, as Egypt’s army moved in on July 3 to oust President Mohammed Morsi, suspend the Islamist-backed constitution and establish an interim government, the news was greeted by tens of thousands at Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Fireworks lit up the sky, as military helicopters hovered over, flying Egypt’s flag.
