Back in 2013, why was military part of political negotiations in Egypt? Common sense dictates that Armed Forces are supposed to act like any other governmental department like food, health, environment, etc, instead of trying to interfere in politics. Army does not and should not allow politics within their own institution. Then what qualifies it to become a party to politics? A security guard can’t be throned into power when all he/she knows is how to pull a trigger in a civil argument or discussion.
Similarly, I believe all politicians need to be trained into basics of political science. One can’t be made a prime minister or a president just relying on his/her personal attributes. Its about people, and whoever lives and speaks for the people, by staying part of the people (as a commoner without becoming some VIP), is the one that should become a leader.
