Morsi might have been unpopular and alot of people wanted him out but he was elected. The president is supposed to be the commander in chief so the loyalty of the army should have been to him but instead they took sides in a political matter between the elected president and the unelected mob and they then arrested the president and installed their own civilian interim PM in power. Other than the fact this is a military coup if they military seriously want there to be civilian leadership in future then they should not be installing El Bardei as an interim PM. El Bardei wants the job full time himself, at the last election he stood as a candidate and he will do the same again so when it comes to elections he has an unfair advantage. If the military are going to carry out a coup then they should run the country until an election can take place rather than give a caretaker role to anybody who wants to stand during the election itself. Everything about this whole ousting of Morsi is illegal and crooked and certainly not how things are supposed to work in a democracy. It also calls into question the loyalty of the military itself and who do they answer to, the government or the protesting mob?
