Mubarak's son won't seek presidency: Vice Prez

Category: , By Echo
Cairo: Egypt's state television has reported that the vice president has said President Hosni Mubarak's son will not seek to succeed his father in elections later this year, the latest concession to anti-government protesters.

It was widely believed that Mubarak was grooming his son Gamal, 46, to succeed him despite significant public opposition.

Egypt's state news agency has also reported that the prosecutor-general has banned travel and frozen the bank accounts of three former ministers of the government that was sacked over the weekend, including the interior minister who was responsible for police.

 The prosecutor-general said he ordered the same restrictions against a senior ruling party official until security is restored in the country.
