Minister Essam Sharaf

The military and the interim Government have satisfied the demands of the Egyptians. A week ago that Cairo’s Tahrir square again to be purple standing for hundreds of citizens. The people protest at the slowness of the process of transition but, above all, by the double standards that the military Council, which governs the country since the fall of Mubarak in February, applies when it comes to punishing detained demonstrators (civilians tried in military trials), on the one hand, and those responsible for the repression that left during the revolution 846 dead, on the other. Prime Minister Essam Sharaf, has addressed the nation twice in a week, trying to placate the spirits; the military have also done so. And those speeches, greeted with warmth by the Egyptians, have been translated in the promise that the Government would be remodeled to flush out the remnants of the regime of deposed Mubarak, which has begun with the resignation of the Vice-President Yehia El Gamal; the announcement of the Minister of the Interior that will bounce to 669 officers to purge the police; and, by last, the postponement of parliamentary elections until October or November.
