La place de l’armée dans les institutions : un enjeu structurant du système partisan égyptien

Abstract : The Egyptian military has been playing a key role in the institutions of this country since the proclamation of the Republic in 1952. Nevertheless, from the 1970s until 2011, it had not been directly involved in the political field and had favoured instead the building of an economic empire. The 2011 revolution put it at the front stage for a second time, and it has since then intervened in the political arena in order to protect its interests. In so doing, it has transformed the issue of its own place within the institutions into a political stake, participating into the structuring of the Egyptian party system. This explains why the revolutionary/counter-revolutionary cleavage has become the second most important issue for the organization of the Egyptian political life, the first one being the Islamist/secularist cleavage, which is a common characteristic shared by all the North-African party systems.
