MUNICH — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton warned on Sunday that removing President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt too hastily could threaten the country’s transition to democracy.

Her remarks were the Obama administration’s most explicit sign yet of its growing emphasis on averting instability in Egypt, even at the expense of the key demand from the Egyptian protest movement: Mr. Mubarak’s immediate removal.

Citing the Egyptian Constitution, Mrs. Clinton said that if Mr. Mubarak stepped down now, Egypt would have to hold elections for a new president in 60 days — too little time for the government or the opposition to organize a credible vote.

Berlin : German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday rejected calls for immediate elections in Egypt, branding it 'wrong.'

Addressing the 47th Munich Security Conference in the south German city, Merkel said, 'I believe a very quick election as a start for the democratization process is wrong.'

'There has to be some orderly transition process in place to avoid a total vacuum of power,' she added.

Yes, that makes perfect sense.

Democratic elections will prevent democracy.

You can read for example Jefferson's "Democracy Too Soon" and John Jay's irrefutable "Elections Cause Power Vacuums" for reference.
