    BY ABDELGHANY SAYED Cairo –Following 18 days of protests in around five governorates, Egyptians woke up on 11 February 2011 to see military tanks across the country; while rumors spread that Mubarak is about to step down. A few hours after midday, Egypt’s ex-spy chief, who was appointed as vice-president on 29 January 2011, Omar Suleiman, announced that Mubarak has stepped down and handed power over to the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF), while SCAF’s spokesperson announced that the military took over power. Mubarak was then put under house arrest by the military in an unknown place, (Sharm El-Sheikh according…

    Editorial: Paved with good intentions

    Air force jets stage a fly-by over Cairo as the interim president Adli Mansour is sworn in by Egypt's new military leaders.

      BY RANIA AL MALKY Cairo – As Egypt sprints along the road to hell, the military-installed interim President Adli Mansour, chief justice of the Supreme Constitutional Court, took the oath of office yesterday, praising the army’s intervention so that Egypt could “correct the path of its glorious revolution.”  Outside the venerable halls of officialdom, an utter scene of chaos, schizophrenia and repression. The swift popularly-backed military coup that removed Mohamed Morsi, Egypt’s first freely elected civilian president, on the first anniversary of his term, began an equally swift reconstruction of a murderous regime that the Egyptian masses rose up…

    Analysis: Showdown in Egypt

    Hundreds of thousands gathered at Rabaa El Adaweya Mosque in Nasr City to uphold the legitimacy of Egypt's first democratically-elected civilian president.

    BY OMAR ASHOUR London – With massive anti-government protests across Egypt on June 30 – a year to the day after Egyptians elected their first-ever civilian president – a diverse and decentralized movement has challenged President Mohammad Morsi’s hold on power as never before. Hundreds of thousands were mobilized to take to the streets, with many storming and burning down the Cairo headquarters of the ruling Muslim Brotherhood. At the end of the day, the president was given an ultimatum. The first “revolutionary” statement of Egypt’s new grassroots Tamarod (rebel) movement demanded that Morsi leave within two days or face a march on the…

    Op-ed: My ‘neo power marriage’

    ethar wedding

    BY ETHAR El-KATATNEY I got married yesterday. It was kind of a big deal. You know, worrying about my dress and my shoes and my makeup and this lifetime commitment and things along those lines. Oh, and also if the President was going to make it, or if he was planning on canceling, and if I was going to be called a traitorous, lying, power-hungry, conniving rhymes-with-witch by the internet trolls. All in a day’s worth. As a journalist, it shames me to see the kind of shoddy journalism and sensationalist tabloid trash that’s been swirling around the country ever since…

    Turning point in Egypt’s militarization

    New Minister of Defense Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi is sworn in.

    BY SARAH EL SIRGANY Cairo: President Mohamed Morsi’s decisions to force the retirement of Minister of Defense Hussein Tantawi and assume powers once awarded to the military, are a turning point in Egypt’s decades-long legacy of state militarization and a defining feature in the Muslim Brotherhood’s future relationship with the generals. Two hours before iftar on Sunday, Morsi ordered the retirement of Tantawi and the Armed Forces Chief of Staff Sami Anan and canceled an addendum to the interim constitution issued by the military in June, days before Morsi was elected president, in what was seen as a preemptive move…

    Proposed ministers reflect ‘continuity’

    Hisham Kandil, Egypt's new prime minister.

    BY SARAH EL SIRGANY Cairo: The preliminary list of new cabinet of ministers show continuity more than reform and is disappointing, observers said. “The government reflects more continuity, rather than change,” said Omar Ashour, director of the Middle East Studies at Exeter University. At least four ministers from the previous cabinet will remain under the leadership of the recently appointed premier Hesham Qandil, according to a list published by the official news agency MENA. These include Momtaz El-Saeid in finance and Mohamed Kamel Amr, minister of foreign affairs. These top or “sovereign” ministries were expected to be issues of contention…

    Compromise and the revolution

    Screen grab of President Mohamed Morsi's historic first speech addressing the nation.

    BY NOUR BAKR At its height, the defining mantra of Egypt’s tumultuous uprising was the famous cry “the people want the fall of the regime.” That the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), along with many remnants of the Mubarak era remain key players in the country’s politics is widely held as proof that the revolution ultimately failed. Whilst partially true, the electoral successes of the Muslim Brotherhood do not, as many have argued, completely betray the ultimate aim of the uprising. Rather the successive victories of Mohamed Morsi and the FJP signify the triumph of a compromise on…

    Admin Court says no jurisdiction

    Photo taken Tuesday at the Admin Court where Muslim Brotherhood supporters dominated the courtroom.

    Cairo: The Administrative Court referred Thursday the case against the addendum to the constitutional decree to the Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC). The court said it has no jurisdiction to rule in the case. In the explanation of the verdict, published by official news portal, the judge said the military council had the right to issue the addendum and was not obliged to subject it to a public referendum as the appeals requested. One of the articles being contested gives the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces the authority to appoint a new Constituent Assembly. A case challenging the formation…

    A counter-revolution coalition

    Many Egyptians blame the failing economy continued protests recently led by Islamists who some believe to be part of the counter-revolution.

    BY HEBA HESHAM Cairo: In Egypt, a dictator was toppled and a civilian president was elected, but that’s not to say that the forces working relentlessly to sabotage the so-called transitional period are abating. Facts are misleadingly mixed with conspiracy theories to vilify the revolution and its supporters, while preserving the interests of the network of the the old regime and new players who want their share of the cake.Yet, observers can’t seem to agree on who exactly these forces are, some saying that the counter-revolution might not be solely orchestrated by remnants of the ousted regime. Many say that…

    Egypt’s fragmented politics

    Protesters gather in from of the State Council on July 9 against the dissolution of parliament, seen as a prelude to a confrontation between the ruling generals and the Islamist president.

    BY NATE WRIGHT As a news journalist in Cairo, I have written my fair share of leads over the last year which feature an Egypt “plunging” in and out of crisis or its leaders “squaring up” for another decisive “showdown.” It has been a year of dramatic headlines and extraordinary confusion, as time and again the country’s major players have tried to launch themselves into power, only to find that the platform they were aiming at has shifted beneath them. This was my first post-revolution transition to witness up close — if I can still be permitted to suggest that,…
