This paper seeks to provide an explanation of the most important events during an important stage in the history of Egypt, starting with the January Revolution in 2011 through the July coup d’etat in 2013, and the paths set by leaders of the military institution to eliminate the first democratic experiment that Egypt witnessed, up to May 2014, when Abdel Fattah El-Sisi assumed power as the head of the state, and the repercussions of this within the military institution and the sovereign apparatus.
