CAIRO (AFP) – The top executive committee of Egypt’s ruling National Democratic Party (NDP), which includes strongman Hosni Mubarak’s son Gamal, resigned en masse on Saturday, state television reported.

“The members of the executive committee resigned from their posts. It was decided to name Hossam Badrawi secretary general of the party,” the regime’s channel announced amid ongoing opposition street protests.

Badrawi, who is reputed to have good relations with opposition figures, also replaces Gamal Mubarak as head of the party’s political bureau, the station said.
