    Egypt’s President Rolls the Dice for Sharia

    Posted by Rick Moran

    Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi issued a decree on Sunday calling the recently dissolved parliament back into session, thus defying the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) and putting the Islamists and military on a collision course. He also called for new elections to be held 60 days after a new constitution is written. Despite opposition by some members of parliament to the recall, and warnings from the military and the courts, Morsi has chosen to gamble that the protestors in the street will be on his side and that the generals fear violence more than they fear a challenge to their power.

    SCAF dissolved parliament last month after the Supreme Court ruled that a third of the parliamentary elections held earlier this year were invalid due to a technicality. The generals then seized all legislative power and emasculated the powers of the presidency while taking control of the process to write a new constitution by issuing a “constitutional declaration” that sidelined the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Bugger. The Egyptian government want elections.

    Good job America isn't a democracy or it would have to support that ideal.

    Does the call for new elections involve the election of the president of Egypt? Now, that would be interesting.

    Egypt’s Morsi says he will obey court
    Fri, Jul 13, 2012 - Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi will respect a court ruling overturning his decree for the dissolved Islamist-dominated parliament to convene, his office said amid a power struggle with the military.
