A Judicial-Military Coup in Egypt

Posted on Jun 15, 2012
Democracy Now!

Due to a decision by the high court to dissolve Egypt’s legislature, the country’s presidential election this weekend comes at a time when “there’s no parliament, no constitution or even a clear process for drafting one,” says “Democracy Now!” correspondent Sharif Abdel Kouddous.

Following the first round of the presidential election, some Egyptians are spurning the legitimacy of the ruling military authorities to oversee a transition to democracy. Rather than participate in a process that legitimizes a political survivor of the old regime and offers a conservative Islamist as the alternative, some Egyptians are refusing to vote altogether.
