University professors discuss their next move on path to strike

Ahram Online , Sunday 28 Aug 2011

Egyptian Cabinet has so far failed to satisfy the demands of professors that all university presidents appointed by the previous regime be removed

University professors are to hold an emergency meeting today to discuss the latest development in the university presidents’ crisis after what they see as a retreat by the Cabinet to issue a decision to sack university presidents appointed by Hosni Mubarak.

The emergency meeting is considered as a first step before the strike called for by professors for the upcoming academic year.

The meeting was to be held on 11 September 2011, but was brought forward to strengthen the professors' position.
