We are still awaiting Egypt's new rulers declaration as to when new democratic elections will be held. The new leaders must not rid that tense region of a people's assertion for democracy. Moreover, the new regime must not exclude from the democratic process any elected officials who were legitimately elected at the first ballot. This simple overture by the regime would signal their commitment to democracy and the will of the people.
What will happen in Egypt? Will the land of the Great Pyramids ever return as a place of solace and education in the history-rich sands? Egypt's future as a birthing democracy is uncertain. The 1970s-style coup by the Egyptian military has cast a doubt on Egypt's interpretation of democracy. One-hundred and four days was all the ousted Morsy had into the democratic experiment.
Moreover, the coup by the Egyptian military extends a shadow over the entire Arab Spring. Has the status quo really changed in the Arab World since the Arab Spring?
If the ouster of Mubarak was a revolution and another revolution has now taken place to remove the democratically elected government of Morsy, then things must be same as in Mubarak's time. So its is safe to safe that Egypt has gone on a circular path to reach the same place and square from whence it started.
The late Mohamed Bouazizi, the Tunisian street vendor who set himself on fire, thus giving rise to the Arab Spring, had a clear goal as to his intent and purpose; but there seems to be no clear definition of particular needs and aspirations of the revolting people since him.
