President Hosni Mubarak's son, Gamal, denied Monday that recent changes made by the country's ruling party would make it easier for him to succeed his father. His comments come two days after the National Democratic Party changed its bylaws in a move some think further paves the way for Mubarak's son to legally succeed him. Speaking to reporters at the NDP's ninth general convention, Gamal Mubarak said changing the bylaws was expected and was not done to make it more constitutionally acceptable for him to become president. "It was not a surprise that we changed the bylaws of the core party system," he said. "If you would like to take it out of its context and build upon it some speculations, it's your right," he said to reporters.
