Egypt President Hosni Mubarak’s speech angered the protesters who are willing to hear news of Mubarak’s step down from president ship. After the live telecast of his speech the protesters are not happy with his decision to delegate some powers, but stay on in office.  Mubarak told the people of Egypt he will begin to transfer his powers to his vice president Omar Suleiman but did not explicitly state he is stepping down.

He confirmed he would not run in the next presidential election but his speech has angered protestors in Tahrir Square, who continue to shout “Get out. Get out”.

“I express a commitment to carry on and protect the constitution and the people and transfer power to whomever is elected next September in free and transparent elections,” Mubarak told the nation.

People waved their shoes in defiance on Tahrir Square where thousands continue to gather.

The speech contradicted earlier reports that Mubarak was ready to step down.It was the speech the protesters did not want to hear.
