Post Mubarak Elections

Egypt, December 2011

The Egyptian Revolution brought Hosni Mubarak’s regime to an end and caused his flee from the country. However the Egyptians continued to demonstrate, accusing the new government of persevering with Mubarak’s politics. Egyptian people get back to Tahrir (Liberation) square ten months after overthrowing the three-decade-long Mubarak’s regime. Tens of thousands of people urge the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) to hand over power to a transitional civilian government. Only a few days away from the parliamentarian elections, the situation in several Egyptian cities remains tense and extremely volatile, with deadly clashes between protestors and security forces. In November, with further bloodshed, the country faced its first general elections after the revolution.
