EGYPT: Hundreds protest to elect university leadersAl-Masry Al-youm.
The demonstration followed a mass protest the day before by government-paid school teachers, who called for higher salaries and the removal of Education Minister Ahmed Gamal Eddin Moussa. The Sunday protesters have launched a union made up of teaching staff from universities in Cairo, Alexandria, Helwan and Minya.
Demonstrators hoisted banners demanding university leaders be elected rather than appointed, more accountable university budgets - with separate budgets for scientific research - and the improvement of working conditions for university staff.
