Youth protests movements have also not realized the gravity of transferring elite disagreements to the general population before reaching a compromise, and that priority should be given to a law-building institution. 82 The dispersion of youth demands is another mistake. Some activists have not seen any need to focus on democracy now, while others have not understood the seriousness of the politicization of the SCAF. There have also been individuals who think that the revolution must continue 79. See Abdelfattah Mady ( ϲοΎϣ ΡΎΘϔϟ΍ΪΒϋ ), Why Democracy Transformed From a Solution to the Problem ?

After the ousting of Mubarak, some political forces focused on their own interests, overlooking the national priority of institution-building and the rule of law. 84 There is a perception among the political forces that the gains that have not been obtained will now never be obtained. 85 The Muslim Brotherhood’s support of the constitutional amendments in March 2011 could be understood as a way to obtain the majority in the parliament. 86 SCAF members have also committed mistakes during the transition period. 87 They did not realize that the objectives of the revolution were not only to overthrow Mubarak and stop his plan to install his son as a successor.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
