Tonight on AC360: Chaos in Egypt

Egypt is preparing for its first presidential election since Hosni Mubarak was removed from power, ousted by a revolution. But back-to-back rulings by the country’s highest court, run by the military, threaten to jeopardize what was already a shaky progression toward democracy.

The Supreme Constitutional Court dissolved the country’s parliament and will allow former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq to participate in a presidential runoff election. Shafiq is closely associated with Mubarak, making the ruling a defeat for revolutionaries and factions like the Muslim Brotherhood. It’s a sign that the powerful military is taking back control and reversing hard-fought change. Critics call it a coup.

On the eve of the election, Anderson talks to Senior International Correspondent Ben Wedeman and The New York Times' David Kirkpatrick. They explain what protesters are demanding and what is expected to happen tomorrow. Tune in at 8 and 10 p.m. ET.
