ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Albany State University History and International Studies Professors believes Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's resignation is the beginning not the end of the transition to democracy in Egypt.

Students and professors at ASU have watched the developments closely. ASU's Dr. Emmanuel Konde says Mubarak's regime is still in control.

"The regime is still intact, however it might be a balancing act whereby, the old and the new blend as opposed to the old being in total control as before, and whatever happens most of the leaders in Egypt have come from the same class of military rulers," said Konde.

Konde says just because Mubarak has handed control of the county to the military doesn't mean the citizen's will enjoy the type of democracy we know in the U.S. He says other countries in the region will be watching closely through the elections. He doesn't believe the change over in power will have an effect on the United State's oil interests.
