Well, two days before Egypt’s historic presidential runoff between the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi and Mubarak’s ex-Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq it looks like Egypt’s revolution is back to the square. No, not mass protests in Tahrir square, although that looks like a very real possibility sooner or later. That’s because Egypt’s revolution is back to square one. It’s been quite a week in Egypt.
With the May 23–24 elections in Egypt just around the corner another runoff is looking likely in the presidential race with no clear leader yet to emerge. But one thing is clear: the top Islamist in the race won’t be the Muslim Brotherhoods’s candidate...sort of.
