  • Description

    Egypt's President Anwar Sadat has blamed what he called small groups of the "adventurous left" and "reactionary rightists" for recent student disturbances.

    In a one-hour-and-50-minute speech to Parliament - and carried live on radio and television - President Sadat said he had chosen the path of democracy and there was no turning back.

    He warned that students would no longer be allowed to deviate from what he called the "broad student base" of the main body of Egypt's 250-thousand students.

    During his speech, President Sadat touched only lightly on the Middle East situation, saying Egypt had spent many millions of pounds on its armed forces in recent years at the expense of municipal services, such as telephones and drainage.
