Mubarak Steps Down: Egypt Is Free
President Mubarak has officially stepped down from his position and is no longer leading the people of Egypt.
Although his stepping down was rumored for quite some time, it was only announced on Friday and there are hundreds of thousands of people who have been protesting and rioting in the streets due to the political tension throughout the country.
The final confirmation of this groundbreaking piece of news was issued by Vice President Omar Suleiman on national television, reaching millions of viewers all over the country.
Very loud cheers and whistles were heard from Tahrir Square with people chanting “Allahu-akbar” over and over. Vice President Suleiman appeared very grim when he delivered the news to the nation, explaining what would be happening with the president.
One of the organizers for the youth movement declared that the recent stepping down of Mubarak opened up negotiations with the country’s armed forces regarding democratic reform and it now seems as though there is much more hope for the country in crisis.
There are many Egyptians who are now expecting the tide to turn in their favor now that Mubarak has stepped down and resigned from his position as president of the Arab nation.
