Egypt’s Prime Minister Hazem El-Beblawi announced on State TV Monday that his cabinet has submitted its resignation to interim President Adly Mansour.

Following a 15-minute meeting with the cabinet early on Monday, Beblawi said “reform cannot take place through the government alone,” adding that all Egyptians should strive to achieve the change they aspire to.

Beblawi also mentioned that Egypt currently faces huge challenges as well as great opportunities to be grasped. “It is time we all sacrificed for the good of the country. Rather than asking what has Egypt given us, we should instead be asking what we have done for Egypt,” he added at the end of his short televised speech.

Channeling JFK by the sounds of it.


"All Egyptians should strive to achieve the change they aspire to" sounds sufficiently vague to mean anything you want it to, so I assume this is just window dressing rather than substantive change of any sort.

There has not been a word of this on this evening's Channel 4 News.
I would not expect progress while Egypt continues to have a military dictator.
