Feb. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will decide “within hours” whether he will step down or not, according to cabinet spokesman Magdy Rady.

“The decision was not taken yet,” Rady said when asked if the president plans to step down today. “The decision will be taken within hours by the governing bodies of the country and by the authorities of the country and by the president of the country. He has to decide himself whether he leaves or not.”

Mubarak will address the nation from his headquarters in Cairo tonight, state-run Al Masriya television reported, without giving further details.
