Summary
Article summary: 

Several wings within the Brotherhood are looking to fill the position of the general guide after Mustafa Mashhour. Some outsiders think succession in the Brotherhood is a result of conflict between the elders and the middle generation. Others claim that it is a power struggle between the "secret" organization and those who are not within this secret organization. In cases where neither of these two fronts wins the struggle, the guide is chosen from among figures outside the war zone.
