Arabic term or phrase: العملية في بيتها
فلم يكن تغيير المادة 76 من الدستور شيئ عبثى , ولا وليد البحث عن ديموقراطية غائبة , ولا إنتخابات حرة ,
فقد تم تغيير المادة خصيصاً لإتاحة الفرصة لإحدهما بترشيح نفسه على أساس أن الترشيح للرئاسة أصبح حقاً متاح لكل مواطن مصرى بشروط معينة ,
ومن محاسن الصدف أن تلك الشروط لا تتوفر إلا لإحدهما وأبرزها الحصول على نسبة ترشيح معينة من أعضاء مجلسى الشعب والشورى والمجالس المحلية , التى يسيطر عليها { الحزن } الوطنى الديموقراطى ,
يعنى العمليه فى بيتها يا معلم ,
