"Fear that Egypt's ruling generals are working to perpetuate their hold on power is causing a political furor, threatening a 'second revolution' and sending relations between the generals and activists to new lows less than four weeks before a key election. The outcry has been prompted by a proposal from the military-appointed Cabinet to shield the armed forces from any oversight and give the generals a veto over legislation dealing with military affairs."
