Port Said: The government in question (media)

Following the deadly clashes in Port Said, political parties and NGOs urged the Egyptian National Assembly to submit a censure motion against the government of Kamal al-Ganzouri, reported the site of the local newspaper Al -Ahram on Thursday.

This decision was adopted by the representatives of the Egyptian political forces gathered in the night between Wednesday and Thursday in Cairo chaired by the leader of the Wafd party, Al-Sayid al-Badawi. The meeting participants also called on Parliament to strengthen the pressure on the military to accelerate the transfer of power to civilians.

In addition, supporters of the club Al-Ahly rallied outside the headquarters of state television in Cairo to demand an immediate resignation of the government and reforms in the Ministry of the Interior.

Clashes broke out Wednesday night at Port Said (northern Egypt) at the end of the match in which Al-Masry has become to Al-Ahly, one of the best clubs in Egypt. Supporters of Al-Masry invaded the field and started throwing stones and bottles against those of Al-Ahly, triggering the violence that killed 74 people and left hundreds injured. 47 people were arrested. A three-day national mourning was declared by the authorities.
