Hundreds of protesters who broke into Kafr al-Sheikh's city council on Friday demanded that the governor tenders his resignation, giving him a two-hour ultimatum to respond to their demand.
The protesters declared an open-ended sit-in inside the council headquarters until the demands of the revolutionary powers rallying in different governorates are met.
A statement for the protesting powers said that they hold the head of security in the area surrounding the building accountable for maintaining the safety of the demonstrators.
The protesters gave governor Saad al-Hosseini a two-hour deadline to publicly announce his resignation.
Several governorates are witnessing mass protests today against the Muslim Brotherhood and President Mohamed Mursi.
