During his election campaign, Mohamed Morsi vowed to tackle five key issues during his first 100 days in office: the security vacuum, traffic congestion, fuel shortages, bread scarcities and poor public sanitation.

During a speech on Saturday, two days before the 100 days expired, the president admitted that he and his government had failed to fulfil all their targets, but also claimed some successes.

Some observers have praised the president's performance during his first 100 days, while others have said his plan yielded few tangible results.

The 100-day plan is the first phase of the Muslim Brotherhood's Renaissance Project, which it has been promoting since before Morsi became the group's presidential candidate.

However, the project remains vague and the Brotherhood has failed explain it in detail.

Ahram Online assesses how the president has performed in the five key areas of his 100-day plan.

Morsi kneads life into Egypt's subsidised bread

Egypt's garbage: An indisposable problem for Morsi?

A bewildering range of factors, from inefficient private contracts to management squabbles and petty theft are hampering any quick-fire attempt to clear the country's streets

Egyptians and Iranians
Hey people of Egypt ... You are so powerful but now you are using your power for stupidity. USA & ISRAEL (supported by the western media) are seeking a point to make a political dispute in all over the place except their own nation. Egypt got a chance to chance the system and Morsi was the first person taking the ship .. give him some time.. Even if he not doing make some political pressure inside his party itself than you are making the revolution ... You should know all these bcz one election is costing too much money. I am from india . I am proud of Egyptians and Iranians bcz they are the only people standing tough against USA & ISRAEL .. Do remember that Western countries and media need your blood and they well knowing that they will not get by a war on you ..this is their technique to make dispute in ruling and domestic violence

And Now Playing on the 10-year Timeframe
Nobody can request Morsi to turn Egypt into a Paradise on Earth within 100 days. However, he was the only one who has committed himself before the Egyptian Nation. Second, the first 100-day in office can be considered an indicator to what is coming afterward. I totally agree with Ms. Sawsan concerning the achievements of Dr. Morsi. Only confrontations and hard attempts of hegemony over Military and other critical sectors in the state -- to name but a few, the judiciary!

100 days
It is not time to make comments on Moorsi's administration 100 days in office. A state was ruled over a half century by the autocrats won't free of their touch within a moment. we have to wait for minimum 10 years to make any analysis.

ANYBODY IS FREE TO FOOL HIMSELF
NOTHING AT ALL HAS BEEN ACHIEVED. THIS IS AS CLEAR AS THE SUN. ALL THAT HAVE BEEN ACHIEVED IS HAVING TRIPS TO OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY. APPOINTING FAILURES EVERYWHERE AS HIS ASSISTANTS, ADVISERS, PRIME MINISTER AND MINISTERS. TRYING TO DOMINATE THE ARMY, TO DESTROY THE JUDICIARY AND TO DOMINATE NATIONAL PRESS. BELIEVE ME NOTHING HAS BEEN OR GOING TO BE ACHIEVED.

Moorsi
the Egyptians must thank God as they got indepenance From military Generals. Moorsi cannot do more than this and clean dirt of centuries in just few days. Do not be impatient otherwise u can lose what u got by the dint of shaheeds of al tehrir. It will take at least 10 years to com on right track. Your enemies are watching u and eager to put thier agents in ur country in shape of basterd Generals again. This is not the final govt. and election. Wait for the next election if u do not like moorsi. Generals has only destroyed the immage of the country and looted it. Do not let them and the american agents come again in power

To all egyptians, please dont put all the responsibilities of public sanitary to the government only. I have seen so many egyptians just threw their rubbish on the street. No matter how much cleaners are there to clean it, it will never enough as long as the people dont give coorporation. This is your country. This is your homeland. Take care of it. Dont be to ego and arrogant,

100 days in Power
Morsi was in the power struggle with the Army in the most of the 100 days. Things came to Morsi's control only after changing the Army head and appointment of Prime Minister. So we have to give more time for him to perform.

Double Standards
Has any news agency produced a report card for Moubark?. I think having such a report will help in establishing a baseline for Mr. Morsi's performance. The actual damage that was done to our county is much more $$s. Mr. Moubrak has managed to infect large segment of our society with corruption. A good report card that shows who is responsible for what.

100 days of Morsi, great achievement
Nora, Yes Mubarak has a report card he favored Copts with many privileges they never deserved. He let Copts have unlimited freedom, and restricted general public, MB particularly. So the Copts captured the media, got high proptional seats in good colleges, go the liquor stores anywhere they wanted. Not any more, so now it will be fair treatment of every group.

Double what?
Are you serious? The guy said he'd fix all this in 100 days, why stake the claim if it is such a insurmountable task. Morsi is full of horse feces, the guy is a shell, and the brotherhood are hypocrites and liars. They're taking us down a dangerous path. Good I'm happy they're idiots.
