Has the Salvation Front Succeeded in Representing the Egyptian Opposition?

EPC | 01 Apr 2013

The paper analyzes the conditions in which the Salvation Front was established in response to the constitutional declaration issued by President Morsi on Nov. 21, 2012. It also provides an assessment of the front’s leadership and political parties affiliated to it. The paper concluded that the front suffered from structural flaws in its formation and actions. This in turn has weakened its ability for proaction and make it settle for reactions, a delay in the decision-making process and an overall feeling by ordinary citizens that the movement has failed to represent their problems. All of this denied the movement from becoming an objective counter-balance for the coalition of Islamist movements as expected.
