No Term Limits in Egypt

From the Independent Online:

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Thursday confirmed that he will seek a fifth mandate in the country’s first ever competitive presidential poll in September, ending months of speculation about his future.

Mubarak’s announcement comes at a pivotal moment in Egypt’s modern history as it copes with the aftermath of the Sharm el-Sheikh attacks which killed at least 67 people and moves cautiously towards political reform.

Very cautiously.
