Presidential Aide for Political Affairs Pakinam al-Sharqawy has said that President Mohamed Morsy, in an address to the nation, will present on Wednesday an account of his first year in office.
On Tuesday, Sharqawy tweeted, “President’s address will include an account of his first year in power. This is a democratic tradition that showcases transparency and responsibility.”
The president's office announced on Monday that Morsy will address the nation on Wednesday. No further details were given.
The anticipated speech comes days ahead of opposition protests on 30 June that call for confidence to be withdrawn from Morsy and early presidential elections to be held.
