Egyptian Army Says they Will Hand Power to New President
Via the BBC: Egypt’s army vows to hand power to elected president
Egypt’s ruling military council has vowed to hand over power to an elected president by the end of June.
The promise comes as votes are counted after Sunday’s presidential elections, with the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Mursi claiming victory.
Of course, it is unclear as to which “powers” we are talking about here, given that the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces declared over the weekend that they have legislative and budget powers. Somehow I can’t see the SCA giving all of those powers over to the winner of the election.
