Newly appointed Egyptian Prime Minister Kamal Ganzouri urged demonstrators in Tahrir Square to grant him two months to fulfill their demands, in an interview with the Al-Shorouk daily on Saturday morning.
Referring to progress being made towards forming a government, Ganzouri said that he will try to include representatives from among the young protesters.
Ganzouri told Al-Shorouk that the unprecedented power given to the government and prime minister will allow the government head “to solve the crisis in a direct manner.”
Protesters demanding an end to army rule clashed with police firing tear gas near Egypt’s parliament building on Saturday in a flare-up that cast another shadow over a parliamentary election billed as the nation’s first free vote in decades.
