Egypt Updates: February 5, 2011
CBS News reports that Hosni Mubarak has resigned from Egypt’s ruling party.
CAIRO - State TV reports that President Hosni Mubarak has resigned from Egypt’s ruling party.
His son, Gamal Mubarak, and the National Democratic Party’s secretary-general, Safwat el-Sharif, have also resigned, in a new gesture to protesters carrying out a 12-day-old wave of anti-government demonstrations.
And an empty “gesture” is exactly what this is, because Mubarak is not stepping down from the presidency.
The latest reports now say that Mubarak has not resigned from the NDP, although others have.
