Denmark’s Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen (Lib) who heads off for the EU summit tomorrow, says that Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak is ‘finished’.

“He is finished as Egypt’s leader. The only matter for discussion is how quickly that materialises,” Løkke Rasmusen says following a meeting of the Parliamentary Foreign Policy Committee.

“We are not electing a new Egyptian leader. That is something the Egyptians themselves have to do. But what we need is that before Hosni Mubarak leaves the presidential palace he has to provide a roadmap for democracy,” Løkke Rasmussen says.

“That has to be put in place as soon as possible, and that is the pressure that that Europe now has to put on him,” he adds.

The prime minister declined to say whether Hosni Mubarak should withdraw prior to the end of his current term, but says that it is increasingly difficult to see Hosni Mubarak playing a role in a transitional process.

“I don’t think the demonstrators will be satisfied with putting things off until September,” Løkke Rasmussen says.

At the same time, the Danish prime minister criticises the president as being behind the latest violence in Cairo.

“Hosni Mubarak must deliver on the legitimate demands that the Egyptian population has for social and economic reform. And there is reason to distance oneself from the violence that is being used in Cairo’s streets. I cannot prove that this leads straight up to the presidential palace, but there is a lot that suggests it does,” says Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen.
