Mass protests in early 2011 led to the resignation of autocratic president Hosni Mubarak. The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) assumed power in a constitutionally questionable way and has since then been leading the transitional process. Significant – and not uncontroversial – additional steps included dissolving parliament, suspending the constitution and the successful vote on constitutional changes, which was the basis for the SCAF to implement an interim constitution. For the parliamentary and presidential elections, which finally took place at the beginning of 2012, Egypt’s electoral law had to be modified according to the guidelines laid out in the interim constitution.
