Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 26 / Trend A. Tagiyeva /
Political analyst on the Middle East, Ahmed Taha, said that the demonstrations in this country will not stop because the people have not achieved significant results yet although as a result of the demonstrations in Egypt, people achieved overthrowing of the regime and changing the power.
"At present, these demonstrations are common. The people want to see significant changes," Taha said over phone from Cairo.
The tens of thousands of protesters gathered again in Tahrir Square in the center of Cairo on Friday a month after the mass demonstrations in Egypt.
The protesters want to see prime minister, Ahmed Shafiq, removed from his post. He was appointed by ex-president Hosni Mubarak shortly before his resignation. Moreover, the protesters call for to sentence ex-president and evacuate him from Sharm el-Sheikh.
Mubarak resigned and transferred power to the army on February 11. His departure was preceded by the degradation of economic and social sphere, the collapse in the internal security of the country. Social injustice, corruption and poverty were considered to be the main causes of popular unrest in Egypt. Roughly 365 people died and more than 5,500 injured during the mass protests and riots in Egypt.
He said that the people's demands are fully justified.
The interim government has not made any attempt of conducting reforms in economic and political spheres yet, despite the fact that about two weeks have passed since the resignation of former President Hosni Mubarak.
He also thinks that stability in the country will not be restored soon, as demonstrations and riots have caused enormous damage to the economy of the country.
"Egypt is going through a transitional period. The stabilization of the country will take a certain period of time," he stressed.
