It is a matter of relief that an overwhelming majority of the Egyptian people have endorsed the referendum on constitutional amendments aiming to rid the country of the legacy of former dictator Hosni Mubarak and pave the way for democracy. It is also heartening to know that the Army intends to hand over power to the civilian elected government as soon as possible. One hopes that the Egyptians would very soon be able to enjoy the fruits of democracy for which they have fought so bravely against a tyrant who had become a symbol of cruelty and poverty for them. It is also hoped that the role of Army, which had at one time been the main pillar of support to Mubaraks regime, would shun any political role under the new set-up. The 22 percent who voted 'No, as against 77 percent who voted 'Yes in the referendum are mainly the youth who were in the vanguard of the revolution. They are of the view that since the rules and regulations for democratic transition have been set by the Army they would prevent organisation of new parties in a short time. On the other hand, there is Muslim Brotherhood that has largely supported the changes in the constitution. Most of the amendments should be welcomed; they tend to make a happy beginning, with the presidential term restricted to four years and he could be elected only twice. Likewise, his powers of referring civilian cases to military courts have been withdrawn. Most important of all, a mechanism for conducting free and fair elections has been devised. The onus for establishing a democratic system of governance will be on the elected government, whether it would respect the aspirations of the people and quickly address problems like unemployment, corruption and social injustice that brought the masses to the streets. All eyes will be on Egypts government coming into power after the elections because its performance will actually determine the success or failure of the revolution.
