Finally Another Coup

Well, it was actually long anticipated. Today, Egypt’s Supreme Constitutional Court has waived results of parliamentary elections (28 November 2011 till 11 January 2012), dissolved the Parliament with its Islamist/Muslim Brotherhood majority and approved presidential candidacy of former and last prime minister Ahmed Shafiq, just two days before the second round. Martial law was already (re)imposed yesterday.

Egypt’s young democracy has been smashed to pieces. What comes next? And, cui bono?
