Political Transition in Egypt — Reports: Mubarak Resigns National Party; Opposition Leaders Resist Negotiations, Demand Regime Change

This just in at Los Angeles Times, "Leadership of Egypt's ruling party resigns; opposition groups resist meeting with vice president." And at New York Times, "West Backs Gradual Egyptian Transition." Also, conflicting reports on the situation earlier, at The Lede, "Ongoing Confusion about Mubarak's Role." And on Twitter, "Mubarak NOT resigning from Egypt's ruling party: AlArabiya reporter." And Enduring America:
It seems news of Mubarak's resignation as head of the ruling National Democratic Party may have been premature. Confirmation cannot be obtained by many news outlets and the state TV seems to be reviewing its earlier announcement of the move.
And check this, at NY Daily News, "Katie Couric fires incorrect tweet saying that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down." That's getting way ahead of events. Way to go CBS!

Expect updates:

This is amuzing, Donald! :-)

You write on your blog Hosni Mubarak might resign as Egyptian President, while I write on my blog Donald Trump might become new Republican U.S. President.

Well, that's great, I have been in Egypt and my grandmother was born in Cairo in 1900.

I even spent this evening today at La Vallée des Rois at "Le Pharaon" in Lyon.

If you ever come to Lyon and don't find my at the Egyptians you'll probably find me at the Italians.

Well, whatever, I hope you're doing fine.

Keep up the good work on your blog, Donald! :-)
