Al-Ashaal: Objectives of the revolution were scattered
Potential presidential candidate, Abdallah al-Ashaal, said that the objectives of the January 25 Revolution were scattered during the current transitional stage. He added that Egyptians worked to establish a democratic regime during their revolution but the transitional stage has not achieved this objective yet.
The former diplomat blamed splits in the Egyptian people the unachieved objectives of Egypt s revolution. He said that such a split would pave the way to divide Egypt. He also criticized the performance of the Egyptian government as unfocused on priorities.
Ashaal added that there are a lot of internal and external challenges facing the country, such as the remnants of the former regime trying to participate in political and parliamentary life in Egypt.
He criticized the government s sluggish implementation of the political isolation law, demanding that the government to take serious steps to dismiss those who corrupted Egyptian political life during the former regime.
He demanded that the ruling military council prosecute the remnants of the former regime, warning of their return to political life. He added that it is impossible to group the figures of the former regime with those who call for freedom, dignity, and justice.
