عنوان مقاله [English]
Objective: In this article, the authors aim to provide a reasoned answer to the question of how Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has shifted the nature of power in the country to an authoritarian system, and what will be the consequences for Egypt?
Method: In this paper, the method is analytical-descriptive.
Results: Egypt has never been able to achieve a model of a democratic government in the Arab world after the fall of the government of young officers in the conflict of the Islamic Awakening. Apart from the Praetorianism that ruled the political system from the time of Nasser to the early fall of the Brotherhood government of Mohamed Morsi, Egypt has not made significant achievements in the political and economic fields.
Conclusion: Reviving the tradition of officers in suppressing Islamists, especially the Muslim Brotherhood, amending the constitution, holding engineered elections to stay in power, widespread financial corruption in the Sisi government, significant decline in the Egyptian economy and large debts, deterioration of Egypt's political position in the Arab world, and ultimately gross human rights violation are major issues that have led the Sisi government to form an authoritarian government and, in a way, to return to the era of Mubarak and pre-Morsi rule.
