Abdel-Monem Said Ali is a member of Egypt's National Democratic Party. He says the challenge is to "reconstruct the country legitimately with a new constitution." He is highly critical of the United States and says it's the last country in the world to give anyone advice in the Middle East after what it's done in Iraq and Afghanistan. Can there be fair elections in the fall, while at the same time respecting Mubarak's presidency until then?
