ABSTRACT
The article reports on the issue raised by the collapse of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak while delivering a televised speech. Senior Egyptian sources confirmed that his collapse was due to flu. However, the incident raised concerns about Egypt's political stability in the event of his death. Mubarak's second-eldest son Gamal holds a top policy post in the ruling party, but denies he has presidential ambitions. More pertinent, Gamal lacks the backing of the military, which may prefer Defense Minister Mohamed Tantawi.
