Massive Tahrir Protest is Led by the ...
Cairo, Egypt
By Daniel Crossman
20 Jun 2012

A massive protest led by the Muslim Brotherhood has shaken Tahrir Square on Tuesday, June 19, to express rejection of the Complementary Constitutional Declaration, recently issued by the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF).
The protesters also reject the SCAF’s recent dissolution of the parliament, which was based on a ruling by Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Protestor at Tahrir:
"We are here to reject the constitutional declaration that creates a state inside the state, makes the Field Marshall, (Tantawi,) the president of Egypt, and makes the new president, elected by over 13 million Egyptians, a puppet moved by the SCAF. It makes the new president valueless. We also reject the dissolution of the parliament that was elected by 30 million Egyptians, and dismantled by the SCAF who were appointed by Hosni Mubarak."

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – A preacher of Al-Azhar protesting at Tahrir:
"The SCAF cannot make a constitutional declaration. The legitimacy belongs to the people. The people are the owners of legitimacy and sovereignty. The SCAF held the responsibility at a hard time, but it lied in its promise to the people, betrayed them, and destroyed them through its acts of corruption."

The protest comes as the Muslim Brotherhood approaches power for the first time in Egypt's history, according to the initial results confirmed by their presidential candidate Mohamed Morsi's campaign officials.
The SCAF said in a press conference on Monday that its legislative authority stated in the declaration was limited and temporary, and that the new president would have complete authority.
The SCAF also reaffirmed that it would transfer power by the end of June as scheduled.

Egypt's Presidential Candidates Speak...

Cairo, Egypt | May 17, 2012

Among the pressing issues on the agendas of Egypt's top presidential candidates is the military institution, and how they will deal with the currently ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces if elected.

Presidential candidate Amr Moussa, former Arab League Chief, believes that the authority of the SCAF will be limited to running the military affairs, yet he believes that the military rule of Egypt for six decades should be considered while dealing with the SCAF.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Presidential candidate Amr Moussa:
"The SCAF that you know now will not be the same after July 1st. It will be the SCAF that only runs the affairs of Armed Forces. As for the state, it will be run by its institutions. The military is one of the important institutions in Egypt and must be dealt with, especially because there was military rule in Egypt for over 60 years. This should be taken into consideration."

For his part, presidential candidate Abdel Moneim Aboul Fotouh said that if elected he will not allow any institution, including the military, to be treated favorably or fall outside the law of the constitution. Rather, he said, for him the military will be counted among "the tools" of the political leadership of the country.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Presidential candidate Abdel Moneim Aboul Fotouh:
"We will not allow any institution, including the military, to be above the constitution. Rather, the military and the Egyptian army, which we endear and work toward making it the strongest in the region, will be among the tools of the political leadership of the nation. "

According to Hamdeen Sabbahi, the Nasserite presidential candidate, former parliamentarian and political activist, the Egyptian military must be dealt with "respectfully,” but stressing that the military's only role is to protect Egypt without interfering in the country's political affairs.

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Presidential candidate Hamdeen Sabbahi:
"I want to deal with the army respectfully, by enabling it to do its duty, providing it with the means of strength, affirming the variety of its weapon sources, verifying its fighting readiness for doing its duties, along with stressing that the only rule of the Egyptian military is preserving the security, independence and safety of the nation's territories without interfering in the internal affairs, politics or party arguments."

Presidential candidate Ahmed Shafik, Mubarak's last prime minister who held his appointment for less than a month, is accused by some revolutionary and Islamist voices of being "the SCAF presidential candidate.”

Shafik said that if he is elected, SCAF Chief, Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi, cannot remain as minister of defense and will not be his vice-president, stating that his cooperation with Tantawi "will be in a different form" that he cannot reveal at the moment.

The Muslim Brotherhood's presidential candidate Mohamed Morsi, stated that the end of June is "a red line" for the SCAF to hand over power to the coming civilian president, and that the people will not wait one moment after that.
