Egypt: Qandil - Egyptians' Ambitions Not Met Yet

Prime Minister Hisham Qandil admitted that the government has failed so far in living up to the expectations of Egyptians, blaming (Hosni) Mubarak and his regime for "30 years of corruption that brought the economy in the wrong direction".

Qandil told BBC that Morsi's administration still needs time to stand ground.

He said Egyptians will require some time to get used to practicing democracy.
