After one year in office, Mohamed Morsi is ousted by Egypt’s military. Mori’s Freedom and Justice Party wins a plurality in the December 2011/January 2012 elections. Concentrating power in his hands and in Muslim Brotherhood appointees, he alienates secular leaning Egyptians. Keen distress exists that he is exclusive in influence distribution, similar to the previous Mubarak regime. Weeks before his ouster, thousands of Egyptians go to the streets also angry at his inability to correct Egypt’s burdensome economic woes. Morsi is put under house arrest while the new pro-Islamic constitution is suspended. Promised presidential and parliamentary elections are held in January 2013; Morsi and 100 others are sentenced to death for fleeing prison during the 2011 revolt against Mubarak.
