The power struggle that has pitted Egypt's first democratically elected president against his country's courts and military has drifted into murky legal waters, leaving analysts, officials and ordinary Egyptians scratching their heads over the question: who has the law on their side?

"But if it comes to closing a deal, he would need a stronger Palestinian base than he now has," Ms. Dunne said.
"I do not think a government following elections would withdraw from the peace treaty with Israel. Nobody in Egypt wants war with Israel and there is every sign right now that the military will still play a strong role in the government that comes next," said Michele Dunne, an Egypt expert at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
