Omar Suleiman, Vice President of Egypt, met with representation of anti-government groups and is now allowing freedom of speech/press and is releasing all detained protesters.
He also established a committee filled with opposition group representatives to come up with constitutional amendments to limit presidential terms and give more freedoms to run for public office. Protests and rallies are being uninterrupted and promises are being made to lift all texting and internet barriers and restrictions.
However, despite all these promises, protesters are still angry. Hosni Mubarak may have dissolved the ruling party and much of his position but he is still President and is not departing from Office. It’s a lot of progress, but more must be done, according to the Egyptian opposition groups.
The government continues to make promises, though, such as prosecuting all those that extend government corruption and to figure out why the police abandoned the streets about a week ago and never came back. Many suggest the reasoning is government corruption (pointing to the rumor of paid thugs under Hosni Mubarak).
The Islamic Brotherhood is becoming a leader in opposition to Hosni Mubarak, aiming for an Islamic state, but not fundamentalist to the point of making women cover up or ending peace treaties with Israel. Over the past decade, Islamic Brotherhood independents have won positions in parliament, but they’re aiming for more in these reforms.
