Finally, Mubarak Resigns

Mubarak speaks on national TV

Mubarak handed power to the army after 18 days of relentless protests against his ruling parties. A military council would run the affairs of Egypt. So now Egypt is returning to the 1952 model of ruling the state via a council of army after the British-backed King Farouk was toppled in a military coup.

Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak rules Egypt for the past 30 years. Mubarak ruled Egypt since he took office after the assassination of Anwar Sadat at a military parade in 1981.

Today is just the end of the beginning of Egypt. We will see how the next Egypt will unfold. Hope for the best of its people.
