Power tussle in Egypt

This is purely a power tussle. As a matter of fact, it is the army-run council that is calling the shots at the moment, and from foreign policy to economics, it is all military matrixes! How viable that could be in the long run, as empowerment of the masses is becoming a real issue, and Egypt is no more a subdued country in terms of politics and decision-making as it was under the tutelage of president Hosni Mubarak. Perhaps, this is the same thought that has compelled the parliament to put its foot down and call on the military to start packing.
The cabinet under Prime Minister Kamal El Ganzouri, a remnant of the yester regime, comes as a point of conscience for the elected representatives, who merely sit as ducks to legislate that could hardly see the light of the day. The demand on the part of House Speaker to tap the executive organ of the state and constitute a new cabinet and a prime minister from among the elected dispensation is quite justified. The military should heed to the call of the parliamentarians and invite the august house to seize the executive powers of the state, and bring to full circle the uprising that changed the course of history in the country.
 The suspension of parliament session for a week in protest is a bad omen and could come to plunge the country in a renewed episode of political instability. This could provoke more violence on the streets that are already buzzing with agitation. This is a moment of leadership for the parliament and all the political parties to rally behind the cause of empowering the public institutions and ensure that the army conceded power to the people. The strategy should be one of dialogue, compassion and non-violence.  At a time when the focus is on presidential duel, the stakes should not be raised so high that it gets to undermine the fundamental objective of change. A deal is in need of being stuck between the parliament and the military. It’s high for the ruling junta to call it a day and bow down in humility.
