It is possible to say that the next step for the Egyptian Minister of Defense, General Abdel Fattah al Sisi, will be the presidential post. This is because new campaign groups and movements to support his candidacy have already surfaced.
For the Egyptian administrations, the month of November has turned into a nightmare for the last two years. The developments of the last two weeks remind the period which followed the Constitution Declaration promulgated by President Mohammed Morsi in November 2012.
Both Egyptian and Turkish armies have wielded disproportionate influence on the political course of their respective countries. Their roles were not confined to security sectors, as expected from an army in a democratic political sphere.
If the new regime in Egypt survives in the coming days, nobody will win a strategic advantage; rather, all actors in the Middle East will lose dearly, most significantly the Egyptian people themselves.
