That’s alright by us and we think a lot of Egyptians citizens would agree.
Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak says he will not run for a new term this September. With so many looking to have him outed for his blatant disregard for his people’s deserved freedoms, making the announcement is probably his attempt to defuse the tension and bring the country back to peace.
However, in his speech that aired last night, he insisted that it was never his intention to be a candidate for another term “regardless of the current circumstances.”
Somehow we doubt that.
He added in his speech that he will work during “the final months of my current term” to carry out the “necessary steps for the peaceful transfer of power.”
That we truly hope for. After 30 years of his reign, its time someone else took over, someone who takes the time to really listen to Egypt’s amazing and unique people.
