Fez - Many liberal democrats in the region argue that Morsi has been in power for only one year, and did not have time to make reforms or rebuild the economy. He should have been given a chance to finish his term, and then it is up to the Egyptian people to vote him out of power, as it is usually done in Western democracies. The army has no right to remove him, and people should not have gone to the streets with the aim of toppling him down. Government or regime change should result from the ballot drop boxes.
