Egypt's next president will not be veteran politician Amr Moussa or Nasserite leader Hamdin Sabahi or independent Brotherhood figure Abdelmonem Abul Fotouh or retired army commander Ahmad Shafiq.
It's certain that Army General Abdelfattah al-Sisi has massive popularity that will guarantee him a real victory; and not an incomplete one like the case was with ousted President Mohammad Mursi, or a forged one like the case was with deposed Oresident Husni Mubarak.
Unstable political landscape
Sisi's candidacy is a mistake because his role is more important than that of the presidency. His role and position is to be a regulator of politics and guardian of the new constitution and regime. If he descends to holding an executive post, he will become part of the problem.Abdulrahman al-Rashed
The political regime is not stable yet and for three years now the country has been going through a dangerous transitional phase in which the popular mood is quickly shifting from loving the army to becoming angry with it and from accepting the Muslim Brotherhood to hating it.
Each wrong step costs a lot as we have seen what happened at the beginning of the revolution. Delay in writing the constitution after holding the presidential elections turned elected president Mohammad Mursi into a Pharaoh controlling the parliament, prosecution, judiciary and the media.
