THE EGYPTIAN CRISIS DEEPENS EVERYDAY MORE THAN THE PREVIOUS DAY.THE SERIES OF PROTESTS IN MANY CITIES OF EGYPT GOES UNABATED !MR. MUHAMMED MORSI ,THE EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT,WHO SUDDENLY BECAME THE TALK OF THE WORLD LAST WEEK ,THANKS TO THE CEASEFIRE DEAL BETWEEN HAMAS AND ISRAEL IN GAZA STRIP,HAS TRIED UNSUCCESSFULLY TO MAKE HIMSELF ALL POWERFULL THROUGH AN UNDEMOCRATIC MEASURE : THE RULE BY DECREE !
People in ever increasing numbers are coming into the streets in order to join the mass protests against this proclamation of decree !
Except MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD,SALAFIS,AND THE FREEDOM AND JUSTICE PARTY -all are either the hardliners or so-called moderate ISLAMISTS, everyone sensed an alarm and doubts of EGYPT BEING HIJACKED BY THE ISLAMISTS AND MR. MORSI,THE FIRST DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED PRESIDENT BECOMING A DESPOT,may be,more dangerous than the ousted ruler,HOSNI MUBARAK !
The Proclamation Of Decree Has Armed The President With Uncontrolled n Unchallengeable Powers And His Acts Done Since Resuming Power Won’t Be Questioned Or Challenged In Any Court Of Law !
In Short,It means that the president is the Monarch devoid of any check n balance!
THERE WON’T BE ANYTHING LIKE ‘JUDICIAL-REVIEW’ –an element so vital in a rule of law or democracy !
President Has Elaborated His Decision Of ‘The Rule By Decree’ ,citing its necessity for a smooth transition of Egypt towards Democracy .He asserted that the decree would give him sort of immunity to fast track the constitution-making process for There Might Have Been Some Suspicion of The annulment of the current constitution making assembly by the Judicial Council Full Of Mubarak Appointees !
This might sound true as there has been obvious doubts that the court would declare the constituent assembly invalid just as it had done to the elected parliament early this year !THE COURT WAS TO HEAR PETITIONS CHALLENGING THE FORMATION AND WORKINGS OF THE CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY , NEXT WEEK !
Mr. Morsi Has Done One Thing Very Correct As He Ordered For A ‘RETRIAL’ Of All The Accused Including Mr. MUBARAK, Who Have Been Meted Out Either Mild Sentencing Or Were Let Free In Wake Of The Lack Of Evidences !
In This Way Morsi Did One Thing Correct !
Morsi said that he wouldn’t wish to hold to such extraordinary power for long and made clear that his decree would be operational Till The Drafting Of Constitution And The Re-election Of A New Parliament !
BUT,WHO KNOWS MR. MORSI WILL RESPECT HIS WORDS ?
There has already been lots of hoo-haa over the over dominance of the brotherhood in the constituent assembly and many members with secular or liberal stripes have bycotted it fearing a ISLAMIZATION OF EGYPTIAN CONSTITUTION !
The International Community Have Severely Criticized Mr. Morsi for going undemocrative And Urged Him To Reconsider Plus Rescind !
There Have Been Rallies and Fire And Arson And Clashes Over This Draconian Move Of Mr. Morsi !
THE OVERALL SITUATION IS EXTREMELY VOLATILE AND COULD BECOME EXPLOSIVE IN NO TIME IF MR. MORSI DOES NOT REVOKE THE DECREE !
