The Egyptian Supreme Court ruled in favor of allowing former regime members to run for office, and this gives Ahmed Shafiq a chance to take part in the upcoming presidential elections.

While most Egyptians see this as a backdrop to pre-revolution, there are many  who feel that the court’s decision was the right thing to do.

The court’s decision to dissolve an Islamist-dominated parliament, was a smart move of not allowing the Islamists dictate the direction of the country. This also balances power on both ends of the aisle, and in the end the people will choose a candidate they hope will do right by the country in honor of all the blood shed during the revolution.
