Nothing has changed in post-revolutionary Egypt

The egyptian government, headed by Issam Charaf, has presented a few minutes ago his resignation to the military council. It will continue bearing responsability until the resignation is made official.

This resignation comes after days of tremendous violence in Egypt, more than 30 deaths within protesters, who condemn the military's continuing tight control over egyptian politics and the military council's secret deal with the islamist extremists to give them apparent civil power through pre-arranged elections.

Observers also say that demonstrators aim to have cancelled the next parliamentary elections to be held 28 November. they accuse salafis and islamic extremists parties like the Muslim Brothers, to be planning to "steal" the elections through fraud, intimidation and violence, with acknowlegment of the military.

In Tahrir Square, protesters have chanted slogans against islamists, "thiefs of the revolution", and expelled them from the square.
