President Abdullah Gul of Turkey attended the NATO Summit in Chicago this week and appeared Friday on Amanpour. He was asked about the presidential elections in Egypt and whether Egypt’s military would willingly relinquish its power.
“The military is well aware that they cannot continue forever,” said President Gul.
“I went to Egypt,” he added. “I talked to all the military leadership, and they know that it is not their job to run the country. They are going to hand off the authority to the civilian government - but I think it needs some time.”
How much time, remains to be seen. However, he added, “I think the Egyptian army is ready to hand over the authority when the time is preferred.”
