After 10 months of the revolution the Egyptian people can't perpetuate a sense of patience any longer, especially in the face of incidents such as the killing of 30 citizens recently, and a sit-in staged by thousands of people at Tahrir Square, in addition to big losses estimated at 3.3 billion Egyptian pounds in just one day. The Supreme Commission of Human Rights also asked the United Nations to intervene in order to put an end to the brutal attacks against demonstrators. After that we heard a piece of news indicating that the Military Council pledges transferring power to a civil authority on time.
According to statements of the Chief of Al-Wafd party and the Chief of Al-Wasat Party, the military council gave the Consultation Council two weeks to form its committees and hold a meeting with the People's Council on March 27, 2012 wherein the two councils will elect or form a constituent committee before April 10, to draft a new constitution within one month. From April 15 the nomination for the position of the president will be opened for 5 days then candidates will have 20 days to launch their election campaigns, after which the new president will be declared June 30, 2012.
If we have such plans in place then why have some people suspected that the military council might keep power until 2013? Why are certain decisions delayed despite the fact that such decisions should take priority? For example, the case concerning events which took place at Maspero has been referred to the Public Prosecution by the military council only recently, although the case occurred several weeks ago.
