Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak does not intend on resigning from his position despite more than a week of protests against his rule, London-based Arabic language daily Asharq Alawsat quoted an Egyptian official as saying on Tuesday.

The official denied reports that Mubarak appointed Intelligence chief Omar Suleiman to be Egypt's first vice president in 30 years with the eventual intention of stepping down and making him the president.

He added that the protesters calling for Mubarak's ouster were a "minority" and do not represent the will of the Egyptian people.
