Egypt's road to democracy: Uncertainty after ban on presidential candidates

The ban on 10 out of 23 candidates for next month’s Egyptian presidential election makes François Picard’s panel wonder whether the military will go quietly after the election, and - with the new constitution still up in the air – how much power the new head of state will actually wield.

  • Ahmed NAGUIB, Spokesperson for the Trustees Council of the Revolution and member of the Egyptian Tayyar party;
  • Myra DARIDAN, Egyptian author and researcher;
  • Alain GRESH, Deputy Director, Le Monde Diplomatique.
