Mubarak regime makes major concessions

Press TV – February 6, 2011

In a meeting with Egypt’s opposition representatives, the government has made a range of concessions including the formation of a constitutional reform panel, release of political prisoners and the freedom of the Press.

Vice President Omar Suleiman, who is known to be cooperating with CIA, met a wide representation of major opposition groups on Sunday, on the 13th consecutive day of massive anti-government protests across the country.

Suleiman endorsed a plan with the opposition to set up a committee of judiciary and political figures to study proposed constitutional amendments that would allow more candidates to run for president and impose term limits on the presidency, the state news agency reported.

The committee was given until the first week of March to finish the tasks.

A spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood commented on the outcome of the meeting saying, “We hope to take the country to stability, security and democracy, which can bring in the future prosperity, equality, justice and human dignity for all Egyptians.”

Millions of Egyptians took to the streets on Sunday to honor hundreds of protesters killed during the anti-government rallies of the past 13 days.

In the Egyptian capital, Cairo, tens of thousands of people have gathered in Liberation Square for what they have dubbed the “Day of Martyrs.”

Protesters are flooding into the heart of the city despite heavy military presence. The army has promised not to use force against protesters.

Protesters are demanding an immediate end to President Hosni Mubarak’s three decades in power.

They say they will not leave the streets unless their demands are met. They are now calling for fresh millions-strong marches across Egypt.

The UN says at least 300 people have been killed and thousands more have been wounded in Egypt in the nearly two weeks of protest against the government.

People around the world are rallying to show solidarity with the Egyptian people.

  1. Egyptian society developed a cancerous tumor (Mubarak and Adjutants) 30 years in the past. Such tumor has become massive and corrupt. In order for Egypt to survive, this malignant tumor will have to be removed entirely. Leaving the smallest spec of matter (Suleiman), will create a re-growth therefore becoming lethal. This is a dire situation for the Egyptian people. The surgery will have to be done with precision.
    I urge the Egyptian people to remain adamant in their plight for freedom.
