past few weeks, the political uprising in Egypt has been splashed over television screens and newspapers, thereby highlighting a new trend in politics: democracy.

The ‘government of the

people’ in most cases comes about because of successful people’s movements and protests. The trend towards democracy has been in motion for the past few years, there have been elected democratic governments in Latin America (Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador) as well as in several former Soviet Union countries. While the shift to democracy occurred over several years, for countries that have lived oppressively for as long as they can remember, it is a well-deserved achievement. Of course, the trend towards democracy can be observed through the current movements happening in the world. Egypt’s radical shift to democracy changed the political system to such an extent that it has been called the “January 25 revolution.” It has also brought awareness to the democratic cause in other African, Asian and Middle Eastern countries. The Egyptian revolution has encouraged Tunisia, Algeria, and China to boost their democratic movements. The Global Times confirmed the trend, saying, “the worldwide shift towards democracy is unstoppable.”
