Islamist Insha'Allah: Egypt democracy to be Quran-based?

4y ago


Egypt's President-elect Mohammed Mursi is set to begin forming a new government, after being announced on Sunday as the country's next leader. Huge celebrations greeted the delayed results, which showed he beat Mubarak's last Prime Minister, Ahmed Shafiq, by around four per cent. Mursi has pledged to bring unity, and resigned from the Muslim Brotherhood to become a non-partisan leader. But the authority of the office he assumes is determined by the ruling military, which holds law-making powers after the generals dissolved Parliament. While they've promised to hand executive control to Mursi by July, it's not clear how much leverage he'll be given. The US has been quick to congratulate the winner, but as RT's Marina Portnaya reports, the Muslim Brotherhood's ties to extremists, means America is undermining its own policies. Subscribe to RT!
