    Mubarak resigns from Egypt's ruling party

    CAIRO - State TV reports that President Hosni Mubarak has resigned from Egypt's ruling party.

    His son, Gamal Mubarak, and the National Democratic Party's secretary-general, Safwat el-Sharif, have also resigned, in a new gesture to protesters carrying out a 12-day-old wave of anti-government demonstrations.

    However, Mubarak still continues as the nation's president.

    It was also reported that another member of the National Democratic Party, Dr. Hossam Badrawy, who is generally well-accepted by the public, has been named Secretary General of the NDP.

    Hebu angalia hii hapa from Yahoo news, weekend edition:
    CAIRO – The top leadership body of Egypt's ruling party resigned Saturday, including the president's son, but the regime appeared to be digging in its heels, calculating that it can ride out street demonstrations and keep President Hosni Mubarak in office.
    The ruling party leaders who resigned included the country's most powerful political figures - and its most unpopular among many Egyptians. The move may have been aimed at convincing protesters in the streets that the regime is sincere in implementing democratic reforms they demand.
    But State TV, announcing the resignations, still identified head of state Mubarak as president of the ruling party in a sign he would remain in authority. And Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq said Saturday that stability was returning to the country, appearing confident that a deal on future reforms can be reached with the multiple opposition movements to defuse protests without the 82-year-old Mubarak necessarily leaving power immediately.
    Protesters have refused to end their mass rallies in downtown Tahrir Square until Mubarak quits. Tens of thousands gathered Saturday in Tahrir, waving flags and chanting a day after some 100,000 massed there in an intensified demonstration labeled "the day of departure," in hopes it would be the day Mubarak leaves.
    Their unprecedented 12-day movement has entered a delicate new phase. Organizers fear that without the pressure of protesters on the street, Mubarak's regime will enact only cosmetic reforms and try to preserve its grip on power. So they are reluctant to lift their demonstrations without the concrete gain of Mubarak's ouster and a transition mechanism that guarantees a real move to democracy afterward.

    EGYPT: Report of President Mubarak resignation retracted [Update]
    February 5, 2011 | 9:53 am

    [​IMG]
    Al Arabiya television has retracted its report that longtime President Hosni Mubarak has resigned as head of Egypt's ruling party on Saturday.

    Both the satellite network and Al Jazeera initially reported that state television had said Mubarak, 82, resigned as leader of the country's ruling National Democratic Party on Saturday.

    Others have reported that the rest of the party's leadership has resigned, including the president's son, Gamal Mubarak, who fled the country after unrest began last month.

    [Updated 9:55 a.m.: Commenting on Gamal Mubarak's resignation Saturday, Tommy Vietor, spokesman for the U.S. National Security Council, told CNN, "As the president has repeatedly said, Egyptians will be the ones that decide how this transition occurs. We welcome any step that provides credibility to that process.“

    CNN also reported that an Obama administration official said, "We view this as a positive step toward the political change that will be necessary, and look forward to additional steps."]

    Beyond all the venom and ignorance spouted on the web, I hope that the people of Egypt do gain some semblance of a democratic society. Any sort of theocracy or dictatorship will only lead to the same ruinous result that has lorded over Egypt for the last 30 years.

    Good luck to that proud, great and ancient nation of Egypt.
