In a Friday interview with Dr Moataz Abdel Fattah on the talk show Bekhtisar,Prime Minister Hesham Qandil discussed Egypt’s most pressing issues, including the Ethiopian dam crisis, the Tamarod campaign, and the government’s planned development projects.
With 30 June approaching, Qandil said that the government is preparing for the planned demonstrations “by providing protection for both the protestors and public facilities.” He stressed, however, that demonstrators must keep their protests peaceful, or face the full punishment of the law.
He also added that those who managed to gather “13 to 14 million signatures [for the Tamarod campaign] can wait 3 to 4 months and usefully employ the masses they gathered [to gain the majority of seats] in the parliamentary elections.”
