Egypt's Military Dissolves Parliament And Suspends Constitution

The military is in charge, but say they do not plan to be so indefinitely. That does not seem as much in doubt as the fear that the hand over will involve one man, one vote, one time. That is to say that the fear is less of a military dictatorship than they elect a theocratic regime who's first order of business is doing away with free and fair elections.

"Egypt's military dissolved the country's Parliament and suspended its constitution Sunday following the ouster of longtime leader Hosni Mubarak, telling Egyptians it would be in charge for six months or until elections can be held.

The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces said it would appoint a committee to propose changes to the Constitution, which would then be submitted to voters. The council will have the power to issue new laws during the transition period, according to a communique read on state television.

Sameh Shoukry, Egypt's ambassador to the United States, said Sunday that the generals have made restoring security and reviving the economy its top priorities.
