Egyptian Army Not Likely To Release Power

Generals guard Egypt power as Islamists claim lead

Reuters’ piece on the results of this weekends Egyptian presidential elections. The military has essentially decreed martial law and is not likely to relinquish power. Meanwhile the Muslim Brotherhood, who is claiming to have won the elections, contends that it does not recognize the dissolution of parliament or the military’s right to impose an interim constitution. Civil war? I don’t know, the Muslim Brotherhood are not likely huge fans of democracy as much as they are theocracy and they have made deals with the military in the past. This could be a bad omen for democracy in the Middle East.
