1954: The year that the fate of Egypt seems to be hanging on two men, Muhammed Naguib, vs. Gamal Abdel Nasser. The power struggle decided between the struggle between the two men decides two futures: one with the promise of parliamentary democracy vs. an autocratic regime. Finally, through trickery, divide and conquer tactics in the RCC, middle class, use of the Muslim Brotherhood armed wing, some members of the left-leaning Wafd faction (social democrats, social liberals, anti-Soviet communists (think George Orwell)) and the tiny remnants of the syndicalist movement. The Democratic Coalition (I know it sounds corny), officially won against the Nasser Soviet-leaning faction in the RCC. Lead by Muhammed Naguib, the gruelling and mentally draining struggle was won. It seems that Egypt would be headed into a future of democracy, and maybe prosperity. But this is not to mean that it is easy. Internal forces threaten the nascent parliamentary democracy, both internal and external. So yeah... this is a TLIAX (tee-lee-ax) of an alternate Egypt, one that is democratic and parliamentary. But who knew what it would like compared with Nasser's autocracy and concentration of power to the military. Please guys, don't ask me the explicit details of the events of 1954 or any specific detail of policy x, as I only gleaned the events from wikipedia and some other sources. This timeline is of course, TLIAX, but time is relative, so it could be done in a week or so, or in any time. This is very easy, because this timeline doesn't require too much details and worldbuilding, which probably means I would fill in the details later for the future. Hence... the TLIA wording. Chapter 1 on the politics, constitution, referendums, economic problems and policy are coming up next. I am gonna get off the site to research more. Also get some international reactions, and Egypt's neighbour leaning... Soviet-allied. Addendum: If anyone is willing to edit my work for errors of any kind, that is completely fine with me.
