The Civil Democratic Coalition, which includes 32 political parties and movements, announced its rejection of Essam Salem’s appointment as governor of Alexandria. The coalition accuses him of having constituted part of the former regime.

In Daqahlia, the coordinating committee of political parties, syndicates and movements on Monday announced it rejection of Governor Mohsen Hefzy, who was a leading figure in the notorious State Security Bureau that was dissolved after the revolution.

In Assiut, members of the Muslim Brotherhood, the National Association for Change, the Jama’a Islamiya and the 25 January Youth Coalition staged demonstrations demanding the dismissal of Governor Ibrahim Hammad and Security Director Ahmed Gamal for also having collaborated with the former regime.
