Replacing a dictatorship with democracy has proven to be a complicated task for Egyptians, says Al Jazeera's Marwan Bishara. More than a year after Egypt's watershed revolution that brought down dictator Hosni Mubarak, the military is still in power, an interim election handed a two-thirds majority to conservative Islamist political parties in the national assembly, the economy is on the brink of collapse, and the country's internal political debate centers on the adoption of sharia law as a fundamental pillar of Egyptian democracy.
Will Egypt falter or can the revolution still accomplish its goals? To find answers to this question, Al Jazeera goes to Egypt to talk to activists, Islamists, politicians and academics.
