Analysis Of Regime Change: The Case Of Egypt

Author(s) : SHAWKI M. FARAG


Egypt experienced military dictatorship regimes from 1952-2011. The revolution of January 25, 2011 deposed the last dictator who held power for over 30 years. However, the removal of the head of the state doesn’t imply radical changes in the structure of governance. The transition period between the two regimes is quite difficult. This is particularly so as the old regime rendered the few political parties ineffective; and eroded any potential for the emergence of leaders. Therefore, with indifferent elite, and the masses demanding their basic needs including freedom, the army had to be again in control. The agenda this time is to follow a road map to construct a free and democratic political system. The objective of this paper is to provide an analysis of the regime change in Egypt and outline some criteria to judge the emerging new order.
