Description/Abstract

After the first revolution, Egypt did not have enough time to adequately form new political parties and campaign before the elections were held. As a result, the Muslim Brotherhood was elected not because it accurately represented the political ideology of the Egyptian People, but rather because it had the brand recognition that other parties lacked. In the end, my research shows that the Morsi government was overthrown because Egypt was not given enough time in between revolution and elections.
