Time for change in Egypt `is now`: EU
Brussels: The time for Egypt to secure a change in government "is now”, the European Union`s chief diplomat Catherine Ashton said after President Hosni Mubarak clung on in a televised speech.
"President Mubarak has not yet opened the way to faster and deeper reforms," Ashton said in a fresh statement released after the veteran leader left massed protesters disappointed and angry by refusing to quit immediately.
"We will pay close attention to the response by the Egyptian people in the coming hours and days," she added yesterday.
"I will continue to engage with the Egyptian authorities to convey the need for an orderly, meaningful and lasting democratic transition.”
"The time for change is now," she underlined.
