Egypt’s interim President Adly Mansour signed a law oSunday restricting public protests by requiring prior police notification, which opponents took as a crackdown on supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The new president has kept only five of his 64 promises. From his campaign slogan of “Freedom, bread and justice,” only bread has been delivered so far. Egyptians gather in Tahrir Square to express their frustration.
Mr. Morsi said what had not been said before, that if the United States wishes Egypt to continue to respect the Camp David agreement made 34 years ago, it must honor its own simultaneous commitment to Palestinian self-rule.
The official results of the Egyptian election won’t be known until Tuesday, but the outlook points to a strong showing by Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Morsi, the possibility of which has scared some Egyptians into voicing support for a candidate from Mubarak’s administration.
