Egyptian demonstrators expressed discontent with Prime Minister Essam Sharaf’s announcement in which he promised a cabinet reshuffle within a week as well as a new appointment of governors by half of July. Sharaf further assigned the Minister of Interior the duty of purging police officers involved in crimes committed against demonstrators by the end of July.
 
In his statement, Sharaf promised the quick restoration of security and called upon the Supreme Judicial Council to carry out public trials in response to the increasing anger expressed on Facebook and Twitter manifested especially in the million-man -“last warning”-demonstration called upon lately.
 
Commenting on the PM’s statement, Dr. Mohammed El-Beltagy, Secretary-General of the Freedom and Justice Party in Cairo requested that some time be given to the government to prove its honest intentions and fulfill its promises.
 
Beltagy added that the Supreme Council of Armed Forces had obligations to fulfill as the government is obliged to respond to the legitimate demands of the people rejecting the idea of civil disobedience and any other form of daily life disruption.
 
Similarly, Author Alaa Elaswany addressed Egyptian citizens saying, “We shouldn’t be hasty and we should differentiate between imposing pressure on decision makers and imposing pressure on Egyptian citizens.  Closing the Tahrir compound and metro increases pressure on the Egyptian people, a matter which can only serve the interests of the counter- revolution.”
 
In a statement to Ikhwanweb, member of the Lawyers Syndicate Council Mukhtar Ashri said that Sharaf’s statement exposed the crisis facing the PM following his previous statement which failed to address the minimal demands of the Egyptian people condemning the delay in responses.
 
Ashri further called on the government to avoid following the footsteps of ousted President Mubarak during his final days by responding late and trying to make up for delays in the extra time after people’s ceiling of demands have increased.
