Egypt’s VP

11 Feb

Egypt’s Vice-President Omar Suleiman met with key representatives and opposition groups and offered concessions that could bring change to the country.
Military emergency, free media and communication were among the topics discussed by the two sides. Also, there are plans to develop a series of committees that would monitor changes aimed at bringing about a representative government.
Many protesters are calling for President Mubarak’s immediate removal and for him to stand trial. His announcement to remain in office until September’s election enraged thousands.
In Cairo, signs of normalcy have resurfaced. Some banks have opened for the first time since last week.
The United States has been mounting pressure on Mubarak to resign. U.S. President Barack Obama emphasized the importance of an “orderly, peaceful transition” to a government that is “responsive to the aspirations of the Egyptian people.”
