Former Egypt VP announced committee to reform constitution
Meagan McElroy at 12:00 AM ET

On February 8, 2011, former Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman announced that then-President Hosni Mubarak approved establishing a committee to reform the Egyptian Constitution [PDF]. The announcement followed other attempts to conciliate opposition leaders in response to the popular protest movement that began January 25, 2011. The proposed reforms failed to appease the protestors, who succeeded in ousting Mubarak from office on February 11, 2011.
