Egypt Risks 'Unraveling the Revolution'

Jun 20, 2012

Egypt's ruling military council has vowed to hand over power to an elected president by the end of June, in the wake of a presidential run-off election on Sunday. But many people have doubts over whether such a transition will actually take place, Wilson Center-USIP Distinguished Scholar Robin Wright told the BBC's Jane O'Brien.

She added that Egypt could risk an "unraveling of the revolution", amid declining voter turnout over the course of the elections and deepening political polarization.
