Egypt's prime minister on Thursday called for national dialogue to resolve the ongoing political crisis and asked for a two-month period of calm to restore security. Dr. Kamal el-Ganzouri also told a news conference that the ruling military council was eager to relinquish power and deliver the country to civilian rule.
"They want to leave today, not tomorrow," he said, according to the AP.
"I say to everyone that we must forget the past and move forward in a dialogue with all shades so that Egypt can live in peace," el-Ganzouri stated. "This is a salvation government that came to save the revolution," he said.
