Egypt and the Fate of Democracy

My respectful suggestion to Egyptians: Consider adding a constitutional provision for “recall petitions” that would force early elections if signed by enough voters.

The existence of such a mechanism would delegitimize military interventions while providing a check against truly bad governments. The validity of a signature list can be verified cheaply and reliably by verifying a small random sample.
