Both Egypt and Tunisia were involved in revolutionary wave of demonstrations, protests, riots and civil wars in Arab world during 2011 which was later named The Arab Spring. The main goal of protests in Egypt and Tunisia was to bring down the authoritarian regimes of Mubarak and Ben Ali. These regimes had foundations in forms of civil governments formed in 1950s after long period of British colonial rule over Egypt and French over Tunisia. Habib Bourguiba took the leading role in Tunisia with the help of his Neo Destour party which had won the independence of Tunisia. Soon after that the Neo Destour party infiltrated in every aspect of Tunisian life, and Bourguiba became the most powerful person in the country. Gamal Abdel Nasser came to power in Egypt after military coup d’etat in 1952 by the Free Officers Movement against King Farouk. They were unhappy with the British occupation of the country and overall political chaos and corruption in Egypt. After few years Gamal Abdel Nasser overthrew the nominal leader of Free Office Movement, general Muhammad Naguib and took the power for himself. They both formed authoritarian regimes in Egypt and Tunisia which had survived in their basic form till the events of Arab Spring.
