revolution, revolutionary revolution, reform revolution and palace revolution.
Based on this theory I depicted the protests’ aim, size and duration together with
the domestic violence. The theory of military coup is categorized into breakthrough
coup, guardian coup and veto coup. Based on this theory I depicted the actors’ role,
the absence of order and consensus together with political contradictions. It is
concluded that the power change in Egypt 2013 can be explained by Mursi’s
performance, the controversial constitution of 2012, political contradictions,
domestic violence and the size of protests. It is also concluded that the power
change in Egypt 2013 can be characterized as mass revolution and veto coup. (Less)
