A Review of Diplomatic and Democratic Governance in Egypt and Libya

Celestine Ikechukwu Ezike


This article examines the past governance of both Egypt and Libya in the contexts of diplomacy and democracy. In its entirety, governance stipulates leadership role and policy administration.  Therefore, the scope of this essay encompasses mainly the two administrations of Mubarak and Gaddafi of Egypt and Libya respectively. Some literature studies as well as personality influences in the leaderships consequently suggest that citizens were more or less deliberately excluded from participatory governance (democracy) and that indirectly affected both states’ diplomatic relations which however undermined and obstructed most international orders as specified by the international system. There was persistence of these exclusion policies in both states irrespective of obvious negative socio-economic effects on the citizenry. A road map was internally generated through extreme civil revolutions that unseated the ailing regimes and ushered in a process of total citizens’ inclusion in the governance. This process is believed to have not only a far reaching democratic advantage among the citizens but also an integrative diplomatic channel that will reflect the minds of the people through civil participations.
