Measuring the efficiency of the banking industry has been a significant challenge, especially in the developing countries. This research aims at measuring the efficiency of the Egyptian banks through the period of 2010-2013, in which the 25th of January revolution took place. The research applied an intermediation approach using the Co-Plot technique on 27 Egyptian licensed banks. Data were collected from Bank scope and banks’ annual reports. It is found that, the political unrest has no significant impact on the banking efficiency and that the state owned banks are more efficient than the privately owned ones. Moreover, the majority of the banks showed a less efficient performance pre and post the 25Th of January revolution.
