The people want “” was the powerful magical slogan of the revolution last year 2011 now in 2012 I wonder what the people want now.
Unfortunately nobody knows exactly what people want especially the revolutionary class.
I am not speaking about the rights of the martyrs and injured of the revolution but I am speaking the political demands that should be clear to the Egyptian people in this critical moment.
“Handing over power to the civilians immediately” is too vague and too broad and does not convince anyone as a goal if you do not have any detailed plan on how , when and to whom.
Unfortunately we are just days away from the revolution’s first anniversary and youth began to get ready for another second revolution “there is nothing called second revolution ,there are actually phases” and ready to die for “ the suicidal spirit is high among youth especially after the clashes of Mohamed Mahmoud and Cabinet HQ” yet ordinary average people do not have a true clue on what is the plan other than “The military should leave”.
You must know the majority of the Egyptian people want the military to leave the rule after suffering 60 years yet they want to know how and make sure of to whom the military is going to leave the rule , how and when !? In other words , what are these revolutionary options in front of the people so they would support one of these options and go to the streets in million and ready to die for ?
Now so far here are the options in front of us , yes options because revolutionary groups have not agreed yet like before on what they want this time other than “The military should leave now”
- All the presidential candidates have to withdraw because the presidential elections will be a charade
Of course this team supporting this idea , did not reach to this conclusion except after the decision of Dr.ElBaradei on Saturday , I do not know why they did not realize this idea before ElBaradei’s announcement.
Ok all the respectable presidential candidates have withdrawn , whom will SCAF hand over the power to !? Not to mention if all the respectable presidential candidates withdraw , all the unrespectable presidential candidates will have an excellent opportunity like Amr Moussa and Ahmed Shafik in front of the people and the world. Without doubt the US administration will not hate to cooperate with Moussa especially he has undeniable popularity in the street among popular classes.
Ironically those who want the presidential candidates to withdraw do not recognize the current parliament so I do not know really to whom SCAF should hand over the power to !!
- SCAF hands over power to the newly elected parliament
It is a good idea actually but there is one problem : the newly elected parliament refuses this idea , the majority party or the semi majority party aka Freedom and Justice party in the parliament refuses this idea. I do not know how to press the parliament to accept this idea it refuses.
Ironically some of those suggesting this plan are totally against the MB and can’t stomach their Freedom and Justice party so I do not know how the MB technically speaking will take over the power if they do not trust them
It is not a deadlock but I think the only plan we have to stick to now is the original plan millions of Egyptians have approved it whether you like it or not , Presidential elections before constitution. We can push the presidential elections forward as a demand. We can have the presidential elections in April instead of June ISA.
I do not want the constitution to be drafted under military rule and honestly in this point I do not need to pinpoint which liberal icons who were and are very ok with the idea that the constitution to be draft under military rule including so-called revolutionary icons who welcomed the military to stay even 3 years so the liberal parties can stand in front of Islamists powers !!! Indeed Egyptian people tend to forget so fast including the revolutionary youth.
The longer we wait , the longer we do not provide the people with right realistic solution , the more they get bored from the whole situation and choose stability.
The people do not want any more military rule but what they want real solutions not twitter initiatives because we are speaking about a big nation with huge problems.
