Will Egypt get a second chance at democracy?
That’s what the world is asking, a week after Egypt’s military forced President Mohamed Morsy from office, after a year of what the opposition called tyrannical governance.
“Second chances are rare in any country,” U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns said in Cairo on Monday, after meeting with the interim leader, Adly Mansour.
Speaking with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Frank Wisner, the former U.S. envoy to Egypt, said that Egypt should seize the opportunity.
“[It’s] a second chance,” he said. “One worth achieving, and there’s a chance Egypt can do it.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s number one goal for Egypt is the restoration of democracy, a senior member of that party told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Monday.
“This country is the main concern of us now,” el-Erian said, speaking on the phone from Cairo.
Egypt’s public prosecutor has issued an arrest warrant for el-Erian, who is the deputy leader of the Freedom and Justice Party, the Brotherhood’s political wing.
