Activists meet with Morsy, discuss goals of revolution

Egyptian Google executive Wael Ghoneim attends a roundtable discussion entitled Youth, Jobs, and Inclusive Growth in the Middle East and North Africa at the IMF/World Bank Spring meetings in Washington,DC on April 15, 2011. Ghoneim who became the hero of the Egyptian revolution cropped up at the pinnacle of international finance, chiding the elites for supporting ousted strongman Hosni Mubarak.

A number of activists met with President-elect Mohamed Morsy on Wednesday to work toward implementing the partnership document that was launched at the National Front conference as a platform for achieving the goals of the revolution.

Activist Wael Ghonim said the meeting discussed transparency with the people in all decisions made by the government, while activist Wael Khalil said the meeting was to express support for Morsy.

Activist Asmaa Mahfouz said Morsy’s promises are calculated but he seems to mean well for Egypt.

The National Front issued a statement after the meeting, saying that it was agreed power should be handed over on 30 June and that the president should be sworn in before the Egyptian people and not behind closed doors.
