The political editor of e newspaper says in an article those who oppose the change have betted on the impossibility of realizing a vision of the Islah and that it is necessary to keep the situations as they are. The Islah program has been a strong reply to the ruling GPC party program which is just repetition of previous promises it did not meet and wrong policies that did not change and a failing experiment it has not benefited from. The government and its party continued defending the privileges the influential continued to entertain at the expense of the great majority interests.
