Graham: Election Could Shape U.S. Policy for Decades

Egypt’s Supreme Military Council has suspended the Egyptian constitution, dissolved parliament, and will run a transitional government for the next 60 days before overseeing the process of the next presidential and parliamentary elections, multiple media outlets reported today.

“From a national security perspective, this election is going to define our national security interest in the region for decades,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said on CNN’s State of the Union.

Elections for a new government are still tentatively expected to take place in September. Graham cautioned against rushing the election process, saying it could then be dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood.

 

“I’m not so sure you can do all the things you need to do between now and September... but it’s up to the Egyptian people,” he said.

“If we can pull this off -- if the Egyptian people can create democracy in heart of the Arab world -- it will be a more significant development than the construction of the pyramids.... It could be a good thing for Egypt, but who knows where it ends? It could all fall apart.”
