A Monufiya man filed a police report against President Mohamed Morsy and Monufiya Governor Mohamed Beshr for their failure to implement the 100-days plan as promised.
The report was filed by a local business owner, 56-year-old Zaki M., to complain about the accumulation of garbage on the streets of Menouf City as a result of the garbage collectors’ strike.
According to the report, the plaintiff holds the governor and the president responsible because Morsy promised that certain goals would be achieved during his first 100 days, including cleaner streets and garbage control.
The first 100 days of Morsy’s term are almost over, as he was sworn in on 30 June.
Morsy had pledged to improve security, solve traffic problems, ensure steady fuel supplies, improve the quality of subsidized bread and solve the problem of garbage collection within the first 100 days of his rule. While observers say hardly any of those five issues has been adequately addressed, Freedom and Justice Party leaders complain about red tape, which they say is a legacy of the regime of ousted President Hosni Mubarak.
According to “Morsy meter,” a page launched by activists on Facebook to gauge Morsy’s performance over the first 100 days of his term, Morsy managed to fulfill only four of a total of 64 pledges.
