In a historic victory for the Egyptian people, President Mubarak heeded their calls in an announcement that he has stepped down. The significance of this moment cannot be overstated, with political and inspirational implications for the entire region.
As of now, the President’s powers will be transferred to the Supreme Council for the Armed Forces. The final outcome of this popular uprising remains highly uncertain, and the road to a democratic and prosperous Egypt is not without major hurdles. But whatever challenges the people of Egypt have to face tomorrow, it is important to pause for a moment and congratulate them on their victory and recognize their colossal achievement.
