Egypt is undergoing dramatic changes and the shifts in its politics are wide ranging, touching upon almost the whole political system, which also includes the aspirations of the Egyptian people at this point. The hopes and fears of the Egyptian people have been high and subject to competing forces and agendas. There are many scenarios that reflect the dynamism that have characterized the Egyptian revolution and its aftermath. Furthermore, the fear barrier has been overcome and a larger segment of Egypt's society has become acquainted with the principle of political participation, especially when today's electronic age has provided the youth with the tools that enable that participation. This article seeks to explain the interaction of the dynamics that have been at play since the fall of the Hosni Mubarak regime and it provides an analysis of their positions. Three possible scenarios are provided, while an attempt at defining the newly emerging paradigm in Egyptian politics is explained.
