CAIRO — Protest
leaders say they have met with Egypt's prime minister to discuss ways to
ease President Hosni Mubarak out of office so negotiations can begin on
the nation's future.
Abdel-Rahman Youssef, a youth activist, said he and other protest figures met with Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq late
Friday. He underlines the meeting dealt only with ways to arrange
Mubarak's departure and that protests will continue until that happens.
one proposal, Mubarak would deputize Vice President Omar Suleiman with
his powers and step down "in some way, either in a real departure or a
political one," Youssef said.
