If you've been following the news at all lately, you'll know about the turmoil in Egypt surrounding president Hosni Mubarak. Many Egyptians have wanted him to step down immediately and were protesting him running for re-election as well. It was just announced moments ago that neither Mubarak nor his son will run for Egyptian President next election. Hopefully this will cool Egypt down somewhat, and the tension will begin to cease. Many demonstrators will still likely call for his immediate resignation. We'll still have to wait and see how all this turns out and if the Egyptian military steps in, but for now this should be a step in the right direction.
Egypt's Mubarak will not seek re-election
