Police have secured the governorate building in Suez following demonstrations calling for the removal of the governor.

A Daily News Egypt correspondent in Suez reported that 200 people marched on the governorate building in Suez on Tuesday morning.

The group began a sit-in which culminated on Tuesday night.

They were protesting against the referendum on the constitution and they demanded Governor Samir Ajlan be replaced, arguing that he only represents the Muslim Brotherhood, reported state-owned Ahram Gate.

On Wednesday police forces moved in to protect the governorate building.

Ajlan has insisted that he will go to the building tomorrow to continue his duties. He confirmed that everybody has the right to protest peacefully, according to Ahram Gate.

The DNE correspondent reported that protests are planned for Wednesday night.
