WASHINGTON, D.C. – February 11, 2011 - Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today issued the following statement after learning that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak had resigned.
“Today is an historic day on many levels, but none of greater significance than for the people of Egypt, who have clearly spoken. It seems that the departure of President Mubarak is a step toward democracy. But despite their intent, I cannot help but be concerned over the role of the Egyptian military in this transition. There must be a transition to stable, civilian governance – something that will honor the Egyptian people’s will – not just another strongman.”
