So much for democracy-Egypt's President becomes the "new pharaoh" in "major blow to the revolution"

http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2012/11/22/wrd-egypt-president-constitution-amendments.html

'Egypt's new pharaoh'

The moves effectively remove any oversight on Morsi, the longtime Muslim Brotherhood figure who became Egypt's first freely elected president last summer after the Feb. 11, 2011 fall of autocrat Hosni Mubarak.

"Morsi today usurped all state powers & appointed himself Egypt's new pharaoh," pro-reform leader Mohamed ElBaradei wrote on his Twitter account. "A major blow to the revolution that could have dire consequences."
