Egyptian president, Mohammed Morsi
Activists have created a Facebook page and website aiming to assess the performance of President-elect Mohamed Morsy during the first 100 days of his term.
Administrators of the “Morsimeter,”
the name of the new page, said they should follow the Muslim Brotherhood candidate’s commitment to the pledges he made during his electoral campaign, such as restoring security, improving police payments, and solving the fuel, bread, housing and unemployment crises.
The number of group members reached 10,000 within hours of its creation.
For more than a year, the Brotherhood has been putting together a detailed economic and social program called “The Renaissance.”
Khairat al-Shater, who was the Brotherhood’s first choice for president until he was disqualified by the state election committee, is the driving force behind the project.
Morsy beat former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq in elections that ended on 17 June. Many political and revolutionary forces pin high hopes on the new president to lead the way to a modern, democratic state and eliminate the influence of the military council that has been ruling the country since Hosni Mubarak’s ouster.
Morsy had earlier pledged a coalition government representing various political players, and stressed on many occasions that his decisions would be independent from the influence of the Brotherhood and its supreme guide.
