The current government of Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil has "completely failed" to manage the nation's affairs, Salafist Nour Party Chairman Younis Makhioun stated on Friday.

"Egypt is still plagued with numerous crises, especially pertaining to fuel shortfalls and railway disasters," Makhioun said at a meeting in the Nile Delta governorate of Kafr El-Sheikh with party members and members of the affiliated Salafist Calling movement.

Makhioun added that the Nour Party had backed demands by the National Salvation Front (NSF) umbrella opposition group for the immediate dismissal of Egypt's recently-appointed prosecutor-general due to "the method of his appointment."

Prosecutor-General Talaat Abdallah was appointed late last year by President Mohamed Morsi over the objections of much of Egypt's judiciary, which saw the move as a breach of judicial independence.

Makhioun went on to say that Egypt's Supreme Judicial Council should move quickly to nominate a new prosecutor-general.

Political Confusion
Opposition leaders are selfish. The present government is an interim one and should be allowed to run. What politicians should demand is an election to be held soonest and then a popularly elected government can be set up. The leaders don't seem to be interested in democratic process. Instead they want to be obeyed even though they have no locus standi. It is abundantly clear that they do not have the interest and well being of Egyptian nation. The leaders of the opposition don't want election because they don't stand a chance. They are enjoying media reports about their discontentment and protests as if they command popular support across Egypt which is not true. On the other hand, just imagine what terrible catastrophe would have been for Egypt had the MB mobilizes their people to respond to the current protest. The opposition knows the Armed Forces also have a limit to their patience. They are hoping for such patience to wear off quickly.
