Papariga says Egypt uprising 'lacks leader for the people'

Communist Party of Greece (KKE) General Secretary Aleka Papariga commented on the protests in Egypt while speaking to the state television channel NET on Monday, noting that it was a social uprising that lacked a "leading political force expressing the interests of the people".

"An uprising, in order to have a positive political outlet, first wants to have the people in the street but definitely in order for an outlet to come there have to be political forces, a political force such that they have a real alternative solution. Now the alternative solution being prepared is a sucession formation that will not change politics fundamentally," she said.

According to Papariga, if Mohammed El Baradei did succeed current Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, any changes that arose as a result would be mainly "superficial".
