A Road Map is a Map with no Road?

Egyptian interim President Adli Mansour kept saying that Egypt is on the right path towards achieving the future roadmap. Here I would like to say that “It is a map with no road”. Since Islamist president Mohamed Morsi was ousted on 3rd July 2013, all procedures and diplomatic efforts and endeavors have failed to find a political solution to the current crisis in Egypt. I think this is due to the road map suggested as it is a map with no road.

The interim president stated that Egypt would still welcome all efforts that would support the country's post-Morsi roadmap. This is due to the endless escalation of violence in Egypt after Morsi. The military has tried to adopt a series of security measures reminiscent of Mansour’s rule. The military started raising fears among protesters and rebels by suing them to the courts. Also, they used violence to put an end to Rabaa al-Adawiya’sCamp. However, all diplomatic and military efforts have not achieved the desired success despite the full support provided by the current Egyptian government and its allies.

The biggest mistake started when Egypt's military-backed interim government has cracked down on the Brotherhood since the army deposedthe presidentDrMorsi on 3 July, arresting most of its leaders. On the other hand, The Muslim Brotherhood, Morsi’s supporters, is demanding the reinstatement of the president DrMorsi. As a result, the situation will stay fargile, which holds the risk of more bloodshed and polarization in Egypt. Additionally, it impedes the economic recovery, which is so essential for Egypt's successful transition

Finally, I would like to say the ideal solution to the Egyptian crisis is the agreement between the army and the Muslim Brotherhood, sharing the authorities with the liberals and not to nominate Egyptian Defense Minister General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi for the presidency. General Abdel Fattah al-Sisicould be the most patriotic Egyptian, but he, of course, needs a lot to be a politician or a diplomat. It is the last opportunity to achieve democracy and put the country on the right track and may be the last opportunity for Egypt's economy as if it does not improve, it will face economic collapse and bankruptcy in less than a year.
