Robin Wright: Egypt risks 'unravelling the revolution'


Egypt's ruling military council has vowed to hand over power to an elected president by the end of June, in the wake of a presidential run-off election on Sunday.

But many people have doubts over whether such a transition will actually take place, Robin Wright, a Distinguished Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center and a senior fellow at the US Institute of Peace, told the BBC's Jane O'Brien.

Ms Wright added that Egypt could risk an "unravelling of the revolution", amid declining voter turnout over the course of the elections and deepening political polarisation.
