AFP PhotoA group of Egyptians have started a website to keep track of newly elected Mohamed Morsi's performance in the first 100 days of his rule, Al Arabiya reported.
The website will monitor the country's progress under five major categories: bread, traffic, fuel, security and cleanliness. The evaluation will compare Morsi's pre-election campaign promises to his post-election acts.
According to the website, Morsi made over 60 promises during his campaign. Each promise will be checked off the website as it is fulfilled.
The website has been viewed as a pioneering act of political activism in Egypt.
