Hosni Mubarak was appointed Vice President of Egypt in 1975 and assumed the presidency on 14 October 1981 (following the assassination of President Anwar El Sadat). The length of his presidency made him Egypt’s longest-serving ruler since Muhammad Ali Pasha. It took 18 days of protests in order to get Mubarak to resign. The protests started on the 25th of January 2011. Grievances of Egyptian protesters have focused on legal and political issues including police brutality, state of emergency laws, lack of free elections and freedom of speech.
