When all the analysts were dealing with newly-elected Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi’s dramatic decision to dismiss senior military commanders, only a few addressed his second “presidential declaration” of the day, which saw him seize control of the country’s corridors of power.
Morsi took advantage of theincident in Sinai to justify the ousting of senior officers, thus expanding his presidential authority to the point where it is absolute.
Morsi is now the head of the executive branch, he appoints and dissolves governments in Egypt, and he is also the legislative branch in the absence of a parliament and due to his ability to enact any law he wants.
He is also in charge of foreign policy, domestic policy, security, economy and more. He finalizes international agreements, interprets the constitution, and has the power to appoint a taskforce that will draft a new constitution. And so, after a year and a half of semi-anarchy, Egypt is once again a country ruled by one person – a dictatorship.
But the current dictatorship is even harsher than Mubarak’s, whose decisions were reached together with parliament, political parties and the courts. Here we are talking about one man who controls everything.
